I was unable to login on my first few attempts and I was sure I was using the correct details username and password. Then I remembered when I entered my new password on the account recovery page, I typed the password into notepad and then copied and pasted it into the boxes instead of typing it (because I couldn't be bothered typing it twice). So I tried copying and pasting the password in the box and I was able to login.

But when they get into your machine and steal that plain text file, it will be mtgox's fault for enforcing an impossible password and making us write it down elsewhere.

It's mtgox's fault to leak our password hashes in the first place...

Even if your old password is "12345" the chances of that account getting hacked is very slim unless you go tell everyone about your username and you have 200,000 coins in your account.

Well I just logged in now and changed my password to 20 characters with symbols etc, and do not have it stored on my computer but I have to still write it down on paper, because there is no way I will be able to memorize it.
