They forgot "love", "secret", "sex" and "god". System operators love to use "god", it's a whole male ego thing.

Glad I am using an 15 character password on most sites not consisting of a dictionary word

Password based on any dictionary word is bad idea. Hacking program may try all possible words in few languages instead of plain brute force attacking.

For normal sites like these or junk emails I use similar passwords, but for my special emails and game accounts I use a mix of numbers and letters which is 10 or more letters long.

Always used short passwords until my wow account got hacked :D

If your password is in the list of worst passwords to use, it is time to change it now

Here is a funny thought... how secure is your work password? Testing the theory before I found that some of the biggest naysayers of stupid passwords was actually using things like chesterfield1 for month A and then chesterfield2 for month B and so on.

Most people are clueless regarding password security.

You know how many times I have guessed people passwords correctly (especially woman) that use their pets or kids names :D

Why is it so hard to learn a little of a far flung non-english language? English and passwords don't go.
