Odd, I don't remember posting there. Ah, so it's another of those sites that
steals content from the MS news servers and pretends it's forum content.
Figures that you'd have to use a web based front end to read usenet.

So if you don't understand something, you flail around like an idiot then. I
guess the FLATLINE in your nick refers to your brain activity then.

It's a valid question. Killing processes is the very last thing to do in an
operating system if you don't know what you're doing. "Hmm, what's LSASS, I
think I'll kill it <click>", great move dumbass.

If something doesn't look right, yes I check the readme's. I also search
Google (which had thousands of posts about multiple processes in IE8,
including those from the IE8 dev blog), and various other places, until I
find out what I need to know.
As to "serious danger", no you won't electrocute yourself closing processes,
or lose a limb. But you can corrupt various parts of IE, depending on what
the process is doing at the time. Losing all the cookies for instance,
that's a common thing I'm seeing with process destruction at the wrong time.
If a process is writing to a file (for instance updating the registry)
killing it at the wrong moment can result in a dead OS. And having someone
who can't even be bothered to do a little research first start killing
processes is why people end up having to take their PCs back to the store
they bought them from for an OS reinstall. I suppose I should be grateful
though, as I get to charge people for fixing their PCs when they do stupid
things like that.

Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out. I realise you probably won't
read this, but as least the additional information might help other users
make an informed decision if they stumble across this post.
