Um, they are the same as the worst passwords for the last twenty years.
I think it's safe to say, those people are not reading these articles.

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

Or they just don't care. Don't assume people are using these for their banking account. If you log in to a porn site you don't care for secure and more about ease of use.

Blame the systems that allows such a password to be used. The whole 8 characters, at one capital letter, lowercase and number and special character rule would easily exclude most of those.

What crappy system allows you to see passwords? Big risk! Do not use SplashData!

I would go ballistic if someone messed with my "most-watched" list.

Meaning I can't use my 24 character random alpha numeric password then.

My personal bugbear is rules that do not allow the use of a space in the password. All my passwords have spaces in them.

No, you need a capital letter and special character somewhere, the 8 is minimum length.
My 24 character alphanumeric password is much more secure than my capitalised name with a number and special character.

I used to have this friend who loved to have passwords like TheFatCatDiedOnThePavement - now take all the characters that you can change to numbers - and each place would have a different type of rhyme with password - then he started to struggle - forget etc.

I loved watching him lose his mind... then he just started using "12345@abcde" type password.

Nothing new here, still the same passwords from the time before. So those people are certainly not going to change their passwords anytime soon
