Bad-password notice on all updates

There's a small bug with our bad-password check code, which was released in tonight's code push, that's causing all users to get the "your password isn't strong enough" error message when updating your journal. This happens whether or not your password is secure enough.

We'll have it fixed shortly. In the meantime, don't worry that your twenty-nine character password with letters, numbers, and symbols isn't good enough for Dreamwidth!

lol -- I just got that one. And since I have a fairly strong password, I was all 'how can that not be enough, must be a bug' so I was looking around for where to report it. hehe.

It'd be useful to have 'strong password' defined when you're first asked to give the site one.

My first (long) one was rejected because it didn't have a digit or symbol in. If I had known it had to, I would have included them the first time.
