    LOL. Not the top 25, anyway. But I admit I'm not that careful.

    But I use "password" as the admin and account password on all Windows versions I install for customers. I tell them and that they should change it. I don't really know if they do. :D

    Hee. I DID make the list, actually. My mlb.com account password was baseball. I don't have a current subscription though, so you're out of luck if you think you're going to figure out my username and hack into it and listen to Mets games for free. :p

    Mine is no where onthe list, even though I use the same 6 characterbase for every password, modifying the end with Symbols or digits unique to each instance. Usually ending up with an 8 to 10 character password.

    Mine follows rules and is different for every site, but it is horrifying how many sites will not accept my strong password and insist on simple ones.
