I commonly use special characters such as !@#$%^&*() in passwords. It would be nice, and increase password entropy.

    Greetings,

    Due to the vast number of systems we support that use passwords, we have limited the character set to the lowest common denominator. To increase password entropy, increase password length.

    Thank you,
