    My very quick analysis of the top part of that list says "Go hack a church!"

    I'm never sure what this kind of thing tells us, especially when one of the "databases" concerned was selected for stupidity i.e. people who fell for a phishing attack. My passwords tend to reflect the value of what they are protecting so I never use clever ones for signing on to web-sites (like here for instance), and anecdotally I've come across quite a few people who do the same. Experience says a lot of people really do use some terrible passwords for important data though.

    I'm guessing that first section is the Christian singles dating site (or it's from the southern USA)

    None of my "easy" passwords is in there so I can relax!
