The Blog-Quiz Trick isn't an Isolated Occurrence

The same cash advance blog scam is being perpetuated by the Blog-Movie Rating Quiz. I wouldn't be surprised if all of the quizzes at Just Say generate that hidden link. I just can't check since their site is running so incredibly slowly right now.

The interesting thing about that one is when I used Technorati to search out people who linked to that quiz, you discover that that particular quiz has hidden different advertisement/spam links through its history.

You all are going to have to be more careful when you do online quizzes.
