July 04, 2005

Slight change of tone.

Follow-up to Evil Extortion Scheme from Anyone Can Post On The Internet

Those of you who are devotees of my blog (you know who you are) may remember that way back in March I wrote about a guy online who'd set up a website called SaveToby on which he planned to kill nad eat his pet rabbit if he didn't raise $50,000 by June 30th. Realising that it's now July I thought I'd check out how Toby was doing. Last time I'd checked, probably about a month ago, he'd raised $25,000 and it didn't look good for Toby

The website now says that Toby was a rabbit he found after an attack by an alley cat, not a beloved pet. The deadline has now been put back to November 6th 2006, and the target to 10,000 copies of his book. Currently sold 3,467

By now it seems pretty obvious that this guy has no intention of eating the rabbit, and the biggest risk to its life is old age.
