It's a pyramid scheme

All you have to do is sign up, click on one of their offers, and then convince five other people to do the same.

As in any pyramid scheme, your chances of winning are infinitesimal after the first few rounds. Meanwhile they got you to click on their offers.

The iPod banning thing has been brought up before, they want to ban all items that can illegally copy copyrighted material. Well, lets ban all computers (DVD, CD, Floppy can all assist in copying illegally), typewriters (you can plagerize) paper and pens or pencils (Again you can plagerize) don't forget cameras, camcorders, DVD burners, VCR, on and on and on... Its just some politicians attempt at getting attention, it will not happen.

Whats Big Brother gonna do next, toss us all in a dark cave with blinders on??? On no, wait, my imagination might encroach on someone else's thoughts... :rofl:

But regarding the iPod "give aways" do people read in to the little imformation that is actually supplied? I know they give as little info as possible besides
FREE! FREE! FREE!

But if you find any writing, its gonna say
"All you have to do is find 5 people to register and they have to find 5 people to register and by the time you brought in 250 people, We will send you a new iPod-
Please wait 10-12 years for delivery"

Some people just donít learn.

It is spam, not to mention illegal in most areas.
You have my vote: delete it!

Mods: Please close this topic and delete any links to the ipod pyramid scam site.

And also note that there's no privacy policy on that site (I went there without the referrer tag). They'll probably sell your address to spammers.
