This is a very broad statement, and is not entirely accurate. The word "satanism" is often ambiguous, as it is used as a blanket term for a group of diverse theological or philosophical systems. Many satanists do not worship Satan as a deity (e.g. the followers of LaVeyan satanism).

On the other hand, such stars have deeper convection zones which makes their magnetic dynamos much stronger than in the Sun. The resulting magnetic activity may manifest itself in very strong flares.

We all know that people tend to choose weak passwords, this is not really newsworthy. Ever since the database was leaked, many people, including professionals, have performed various analyses of cracked passwords. This is fine, but I think there are more important things we need to know right now:
1) When exactly was the database leaked? It seems that it's been floating around the internet for some time before it hit the news last week.
2) What the attack vector was?
3) What security measures have been taken by LinkedIn to ensure this will not happen again?
And perhaps one more: is there a relation between LinkedIn, eHarmony and last.fm database leaks? Did the same person/group do this?
