Sorry, must contain at least one upper case and one lower case letter.

Sorry, breaking up the password on uppercase characters reveals common English words. Please try again. (I've never seen this in real life.)

"mYpassworDiSmorEthaN20characterSlong!"
Sorry, you have only one special character and it's at the end of the password. Please try again. (I've never seen this in real life, either.)

"correct2horse@batterY!staple"
Sorry, but we read XKCD too. Please try again.

"mY@#$!passw0rDiSnorEthan20characterslong"
Accepted. Thank you.

(Did you notice I misspelled "morE" as "norE"? If that was an actual typo, I'd wouldn't be able to get in when I tried the password.)
