It looks like it isn't honestly a game, since you don't play-- it just does it for you. Pointless. Go play Little Fighter or something instead.

And hiding the character behind tinyurl link isn't nice.
If I recall correctly, opening it will help them somehow.

So it's the same as using referral link shit for your benefit.

Yeah, I was wondering if this was merely a flimsily-disguised advertisement or even a malware link (particularly in light of the tinyurl obfuscation). But I believe I came out of it clean (I'm running Linux, which isn't often targetted, and Opera, which is pretty good about patching vulnerabilities promptly, and have a scanner running), and I don't see how I could have made money for them, since I didn't click on any ads... unless the the flash program does some free distributed computing for a central server that sends out computing problems (code-cracking?) or other tasks (DDoS?) while the person is distracted by watching the graphics-- like a SETI screensaver except not upfront about it? In such a manner a flash program could be a trojan without actually needing to be installed on a computer in any permanent sense, and cause no direct harm to the dupe himself other than possibly slowing his computer down while the .swf is running.

Edit: Or unless I made a few cents for this guy for his acting as a referrer, like you said.

I'm surprised he didn't remove this entire thread and ban the user since we've been getting 1 or 2 fake users a day using the site for advertising.

I've been removing them.
Maybe I should just leave this here as a warning that doing this isn't acceptable.
Although I think these are just automated registrations using bots, so they most likely don't even care. :/

And I thought I banned that user already...

You should see the ones I get to before you see them. :P

if you are going to ban someone, at least do it right. ;p
