This is a wiki to "out" those website that are doing tricky things to hide ads, mine your personal info, etc. It's primarily for computer folks, I think, and I haven't waded through much of it yet, but even so, I thought there might be folks here who would want to take a look at it.

The goal is, that if you know what the trick is, you're less likely to be conned.
 
I promise I will be the best, most loyal friend ever! All for this tiny ad:
