    No, not on there. 🙂

    • These are the lazy man’s passwords. Unfortunately, I have so many different ones, that I have to keep a list, especially for those sites I visit infrequently.

  2. Chelsea K. says:

    No, I am glad to say that none of my passwords are on that list either.

  3. Diane P. Diamond says:

    Nope, mine arn’t there either.

    • You are the smart one, Diane. When my web mistress set up my website, she used one of this for the initial log in. I admit that I foolishly did not change it for several months. Of course, that was some three years prior.
