I had an interesting looking traffic source on my blog today and when I tried to visit it Blogger stopped me. I tried googling it and the first result was From the Sidelines. It's run by a guy who does film reviews but he also gets a lot of spam comments and visits the sites with a virtual computer to keep himself safe from viruses. It's really interesting and makes you more aware of the dangers.

There used to be a blogger who sold things online (mostly tack and other expensive things related to horses, including horses) and would pursue the "buyers" who wanted to write her a BIG cashier's check and have her send the difference.
She would post their "inquiries" and her responses (Why haven't you picked him up yet? and such). It was both entertaining and informative.

That blog is interesting -- I like how he sometimes shows the spam pages he's referring to by using screenshots, which are just images and safe to click on. Also I like that he keeps warning people "Don't try this at home."
