    WTF? - People listing Links to my site -

    I was looking at my sites hits and I have been getting a lot from www.drugsforum.nl. When I went to the site I noticed someone had a link to my website with a non-existant directory attached. Why would someone do this? I thought maybe they got access and FTP'd something up, but the directory they named is non-existant.

    Nevermind, The Web Archive shows the link he posted existed back in 2002.

    I don't mind people linking to my site, it was the non-existant directory and the site they were coming from that made me a little paranoid.

    Hi Info Tech Geek

    This is just too weird. That link was brilliant, because I found a link on the site to a Dutch supplier of exotic cacti ( I already have a few more normal ones, courtesy of Katja's advice)

    Now, the amazing thing is they are selling them for drug use..............but I could buy from them and make 100-300% profit, selling them on to fellow members of the British Cactus and Succulent Society!

    Hey, a guy has to have a hobby?

    The reason I posted was I thought you guys might find it amusing that you go to a computer security site, you read a thread in "Web Security" and you find an apparently excellent source for prizewinning cacti.............

    Wow, I bet many folks here don't feel nearly so bad about their hobbies now. I know I certainly don't!

    Did that directory exist 3 years ago? Did you not own the domain at that time?

    I did not own the domain at that time, but I am still getting traffic hits. I know the way back machine has it archived. www.zowned.com/allard or something like that.
