html and conversations in rockyou
#1
I'm probably late to this, but I was doing some analysis on the rockyou list from skullsecurity.org, and I noticed a lot of html and what looks like private conversations also included in the list. I'm assuming these are just artifacts from the data breach. I never bothered to look through the whole list in detail before so this is new to me.

Stuff like this:

In practice does everyone just strip out these entries or just load them up as valid password candidates?

I've raised the topic of garbage in leaked lists on the forum over on hashes.org.
