Comment (by GaryJ):

 I agree with the Reset Password change.

 As well as being an action, not a question, it then also catches those who
 think they have a password, but it turns out not to work for some reason
 (i.e. copied down wrong) or otherwise want to reset it (perhaps their
 account was considered to be hacked and they want a new password). They
 wouldn't consider their password lost, but they do need to reset it.
