Moronic Optus Password Requirements

Optus require me to change my password.

They reject “OptusAreABunchOfDope5” (despite its javascript algorithm marking the password as “strong”)

because, apparently, I can’t have a password which contains dictionary words.

However, they happily accept:


as a password – Don’t worry, I have changed it ;0

I ask you, which of these would be easier to crack?
