This template can be copied and pasted into a ticket reply, or condensed into helpful tips to share over the phone:

We apologize for the trouble. Rest assured that you are not the only one who has experienced this problem. Unfortunately we cannot change the sensitivity of the system, but here a couple helpful tips:

Use passphrases instead of passwords, e.g.:
"100Dolphinsswiminbluesea!" vs.
"BlueDolphin01!"
Use a URL (real or made-up) of a favorite website, e.g.:
https://yahoo.com/finance/Stocks
You can replace the 'a's in your password with '@' and 'e's with '3's. e.g.: "algebra" -> "@lg3br@"
