Is it just me, or do others also feel that this default behavior is not appropriate? Imagine you use Manjaro at work, go to lunch break, come back to your desk right before an important meeting is scheduled, mistype your 30-char password (yes, 30 chars), then your account is locked. As a consequence you must either
a) lose work and context
b) lose time
c) be late for the meeting
Probably all a), b) and c) will happen due to this default account locking feature.
Proposal: by default it should not lock the account.
