    This is an article on how to keep your identity safe on the internet by choosing more secure passwords. It is based on content developed by the Consumer Education project in Mozilla Engagement.

    ... and here's Michael Verdi's post about the background for this article:

    Here is, I think, an example of an article that when though many many revisions in which much information was deleted but resulted in a very successful article. About 2 years ago, Richard Milewski (who works on Air Mozilla) ported his three-part blog post [1], [2], [3] to a sumo article - Create secure passwords to keep your identity safe. The full history of this article isn't available because of the way we migrated content to Kitsune 2 years ago but basically, the first revision contained everything in those three blog posts. I worked with Richard over the course of a week on email and skype to create the article as it is now. To date it has well over 140,000 visits. It's probably a blog post away from hitting 150K. You can see in it's history that when it gets linked externally (like it did at the end of Feb/beginning of March this year) it's highly rated - 95%+ range. I think some of that is due to the fact that we made it an article that you can consume and put into practice in just a few minutes.
