SSH: passwords or keys?

At my previous job, the systems group set up SSH on the servers such that it would not accept the keys -- you had to use the passwords. As a user I found it rather annoying, but the motivation was not completely without merit -- they wanted to ensure that people could not use password-less keys, and the only way to do that was to ban the use of keys altogether.
Need I mention that the systems group there was a real BOFH club? :-)
