    thanks.
    this was a few weeks back, but we have. about 500 per day more than usual.

    one of our members made some crossword puzzles for team fortress 2 and left 4 dead, and sent them in to valve. so valve should be linking to our site from their official game blogs any time this week or next. that should bring in a surge of traffic. just hoping my 1gb liquidweb vps can handle it :noes:

    no they didnt notify me. im guessing the person researching the article looked for a top site on the subject.

    its funny because the 'tutorial' they have on there is pretty shitty.

    sourpatch.org :mamoru:

    they offered me $500 to preceed any legal action, but I didn't want to give them my info, so they went ahead and had a lawyer get Godaddy to freeze the domain. I then had a ton of emails back and forth and was just like fuck it, KEEP THE DOMAIN, I DONT CARE, JUST STOP EMAILIGN ME. They finally did... I consider myself lucky.

    If you wish to see what the site was, goto [NWS BROWSER HIJACKERS] sourmath.com or moldymen.com - [/NWS BROWSER HIJACKERS]

    What part of NWS BROWSER HIJACKERS don't you understand.

    And I bet a good number of folks got fired or seriously in trouble over it too. :mamoru:
