It's parody and it's protect speech!

That's just funny as hell.

That's debatable, but the URL is a copyright protected name.

It's obviously an email harvesting platform to get the fools that think it's real and register and then also the less savvy folks who want to comment and aren't smart enough to enter a fake name and email address.

But I thought that was too obvious to point out. Guess you can never be too redundant!

I've vetted it- it's actually pretty funny. I agree on the email harvesting bit, but I don't enter my email in random fields...

As for the url name, that's up to the Org- but it is a parody.
