Not to bump an ancient post or anything... No, wait, absolutely to bump an ancient post;
"PC World" might have had it, I see "PC Magazine" also has it, both of them have it in the incorrect typoed form. This is actually a blatant ripoff (Yes, I'm accusing these PC magazine sites of plagarism) of an article I found at tech.yahoo.com and the password for number nine is "BLINK" 182, not "LINK". BLINK182 is actually a fairly popular band. No wonder so many people choose it. Especially when a short word and a few numbers are required in passwords nowadays.

link182? i find that hard to buy. i've worked with computers for 3 years now at mcdaniel college (formerly western maryland) and never once have i seen that out of thousands of passwords that are used here at the school each year. Monkey i would actualy think is higher. i would also add the always obvious "admin/ admin1"
