Gil,
To bad your site has the 8 character and  password rules. I respectfully decline to jump through those hoops. I have too many passwords that are forever changing to deal with all the special rule cases.
 no snide remarks about politics, But I detest being told how and what is required for a lousy password for a website.
You site has potential, though.

Tom, you just typed 65 words about how you didn't want to type 8 characters. You could forget about it, have your browser remember it, and just request a password reset the next time you need to use it.

Password strength requirements are needed not just to protect the users - who might not care - but protect the forum owner and the server owner (and the colocation facility, by extention) from automated mass password guessing attacks.

I've been doing pretty good for the last 32+ years without the need for all the extra crap, upper lower special characters. I used the  space bar and return key on one system for a year and when the passwords were reviewed the IT wizard was totally amazed that it kept the system free of unauthorized people. Yes I had people try to break in but they used their own logic, where as i used a different approach. Sadly after the administrators found out about my password the patches were introduced.

Against all protocol. Since i have so many passwords now they are stored on my blackberry. Just too many. also I utilize several computers.

Well, I wish I didn't have to implement those rules. Unfortunately, spam bots are getting smarter and without the level of protection currently in place, the site would be flooded with ads for porn sites and the likes... As for entering an eight character password, you do that only once in a while. Your browser can remember your password and enter it for you.
