    I like strong passwords. My son used to tease me about it. He’d want to get into my computer to work on it and would ask me for the password. I’d tell him and he’d say that I must think I’m Fort Knox. Thanks for sharing the most common passwords. Hackers must love them.

    LOL. Just goes to show how unimaginable we interneters can be. Wish they’d devise a way of using images. I’d create a fabulous stick woman with big boobs. How original is that!
