Fatal Attraction revenge on the Net
Texas man posts bunny boiler's rantings online
What do you do when your ex-love turns into a bunny boiler? How about posting their rantings on the Net?
That's what one Dallas man decided to do after he dumped his girlfriend of eight months. He claims that the woman called him incessantly (50 voicemail calls on his mobile phone, with 25 in just one night), so he registered the URL psychoexgirlfriend.com, and stuck her messages on the site.
The stunt has obviously hit a nerve - in the last week more than 150,000 people have logged to listen the woman's messages, which are alternately painful and scary. The site received 200,000 hits in its first two days. [The site is also a pop-up nightmare, so be warned - Ed.]
"Above all else, let this be a lesson to you - run, don't walk, from a psychotic woman," the site states.
The woman, who gets more and more hysterical as the messages progress, also seems to have captured the imagination of America's youth. Students at Boston University have already devised a drinking game that entails logging onto the site and knocking back a shot every time they hear the unfortunate ex use the F-word, spinthebottle.com reports.
On of these pop-ups features an option to change a user's default Web page. Another, which spawns itself off an Window containing a picture of Jennifer Love Hewitt, attempt to download a plug-in for the GoHip! Search engine, and has caused concern from some Register readers.
Mark Read, a professional services consultant at MIS Corporate Defence, said he was concerned that the application was signed only two days ago, which he felt was somewhat "worrying". "You should never download this kind of content," he added.
If you do want to visit the site Read advises setting security settings to high. ®
