Super Duper Secret Passwords

What's the deal with websites requiring super complex passwords? Whenever I update a password or sign up somewhere, they seem to require upper case, lower case, and numerals... some even require special symbols &^%$#@!

I can understand banks or the government but USC Marshall alumni directory?! Really? Everyone can see the data I put in anyway. It's as if these people don't realize that most users have lots of sites with userid/passwords... I can't come up with unique/complex passwords for all of them.
