the jest of this whole article is a planned attempt to repair Target's tainted image which is affecting its sales. It is all just a marketing tool that they are starting.

Use an application like LastPass and set up long, random, unique password for every site you use. Don't rely on the rules of any one site to dictate a strong-password policy to you.
