Gasp! they're out to steal my audience of up to three people!

Well, if you pay for blogger pro, wouldn't your password to blogger eventually link up to a credit card number in the interface somewhere?

This looks like an amateur version of the paypal spam scam that keeps going around.

Oh man, I should learn not to take a drink when I'm reading this site.

Other than this link, how would anyone ever find this site?

And is it a commentary on the intelligence of bloggers (and Blogger users in particular) that something so visually amateurish could fool anyone?

Man. What if they got my password and could see all the sensitive information I've put in my blog?

good job urlnotfound - it's gone already!

i always liked to get in touch with the security desks of various network providers when someone was trying EVERY SINGLE port on my computer while i was watching them through my firewall, and watch as they dropped their connection and the "attack" stopped. Self DOS is always fun to do to people as well....

I know I've mentioned it before, but I just love it when the comment matches the username. We should all aspire to this.
