    Is there any way to disable the dictionary check with changing passwords in CPanel? I've gotten repeated complaints from customers about this.

    Yeah, it is definitely a pain in the ass. Sure, it forces the customer to be more thoughtful about their password, but many people really hate that feature.

    My experience is that, when the customer is made aware of the security risks of using dictionary words you will never hear a complaint about this.

    Also which complaints do you prefer?
    Complaints about not being able to use dictionary words or complaints about accounts being compromised (and its consequences) ?
