Pooh bear?

While Pooh bear lacks brains tho, he has an infinite source of luck. Perhaps one of the fake keys, combined with the current event of heavy solar flare, somehow got corrupted during transmission at some point between the 100 Acre Woods and Sony's server in Japan. Luckily for him the corrupted packets translates back into a working key at the SOE server. A one in a zillion event, but no doubt possible.

It's just too bad that no mere mortal man has such luck.

There's far too many double entendre when we have an article with the phrase honeypot and Ms Bee making an appearance in the thread.

That dude sounds more like an annoyed mark than an objective researcher to me.

One of my favourite ever lines from the great, great Andy Hamilton:

Among, it must be said, many candidates.

"You say pot*ah*to, whereas we....pronounce it correctly."

From Revolting People. If you've not heard it, you've not lived.

WTF?

Real answers?

Are people still giving correct answers to surveys? You'd think they actually want to be scammed and spammed!

Affiliates

As far as I can tell, affiliates exist only to give companies plausible deniability when they spam/scam or make money from those who do. "It wasn't us, it was the affiliate."

This is a great way for major advertising brokers like Overture or whoever to launder clicks from hijacked web browsers. Back in the coolwebsearch days the vast majority of links on hijacked browsers went through two or three levels of affiliates, starting in Russia and working their way west, and ended up at Yahoo or Overture or Doubleclick - who all made a mint, undoubtedly.

When asked for comment, all of the above said, "It's just the affiliates... we try to police it, but there are -so many-...." Right. You poor babies.
