engineering adding requirements to password

To be honest, I find having strict password requirements to 
be an annoyance and not a benefit. I would say as a rule the 
most reasonable is to just specify a length, maybe special 
characters + alphanumeric. Anything more is asking for people 
to write down their password, which defeats the whole purpose 
of having secure passwords. I also hate having to change your
password every x days with the usual ridiculous set of rules 
(e.g. cannot re-use the last 25 passwords) - again all that 
does is force people to write the thing down so they don't 
forget, at which point you might as well not ask 
for a password at all.

Here is what the above code is Doing:
1. It’s checking to see if the password is at least 8 characters long.
2. It’s checking to see if the password has at least one uppercase letter.
3. It’s checking to see if the password has at least one lowercase letter.
4. It’s checking to see if the password has at least one number.
5. It’s checking to see if the password has at least one special character.
