    I suspected the link was a potentially malicious site, so I brought it up in with lynx being extra paranoid.

    The link is funny. It brings up a page that says:


    SPAM Violation!
          This site has been banned for SPAM violations. We apologize for the
          idiot webmaster who could not control him/her self.
          If you would like your own 100 MB FREE WEB SITE with a long list of
          features simply sign up at 0catch.com.

    It sounds like it's a too elaborate scheme to sell hosting services. It's hard to believe that this kind of thing is profitable.

    • Stopped a lot of them here [messagelabs.com]...

      The alledged "removed" site is actually what's being spamvertised.

      i.e. people like you get curious, get a good laugh, think 0catch are good guys, and sign up with them.

      0catch are the spammers here (alledgedly).

        I meant the whole thing, the Spam, the site message everything is part of this elaborate scheme.
