Ok this is strange, but check it out..

I did a website that was kind of my take on the milliondollarhomepage (i wont post the link, dont know if its allowed, but you can read my blog post about the story behind it here ).

Anyway, I posted to digg and reddit, went to dinner.. came back and saw that woot.com bought 10 links! Stranger though, they put 'woot.com sucks' as the link title?!

So I really wonder, is woot.com
a) having a laugh
b) doing a calculated marketing move and snatching up 10 links at a super low rate or
c) (and this is where I am concerned) can you fake paypal IPN? It looks very legit, and shows up in my paypal account as well.

Either way, they're getting great attention for low money I guess.
