I wish every site would just use emailed sign-in links instead of passwords. We wouldn't have to deal with all these password relative nonsenses - password managers, .well-knowns, password requirements, password resets, weak passwords, gazilion passwords in my head. Everything would be so much simpler

And then your email gets compromised and everything is immediately lost? No thanks

Everything is already lost if your email is compromised as they can just use the "forgotten password" functionality and reset it thanks to their access to your email.

And that is why I have a 2FA app for my email.
