Just use good passwords (I like length better than complexity) and do away
with account lockout policies completely. You're right, lockout is expensive
to manage. Plus, it creates a situation where an attacker can conduct
purposeful bogus logons to lock you out of your own accounts. Wonderful form
of a denial of service attack!
