There's apparently a fraudulent domain misspelling the world "silicon" in the "siliconangle.com" with two lower case "ll".

It is currently being used on the main discussion board here in the thread "BREAKING NEWS: SATOSHI FINALLY REVEALED!" Can some moderator go there and obfuscate the HTTP: link to avoid spiders from increasing the rank of that fraud?

Unfortunately I slightly worsened the situation by not obfuscating the http link in one of my quotes. I'm posting over a bad connection in a pizzeria that is closing shortly. I'm going to delete my bad posts in that thread and paste them here.

Thanks in advance.

How about hxxp://silliconangle.com/blog/2016/05/03/Craig-Wright-faces-criminal-charges/index.html

This is fraudulent website that misspells the word "silicon". The correct website doesn't have this post:

http://siliconangle.com/blog/2016/05/03/Craig-Wright-faces-criminal-charges/index.html

Please quote my post for posterity.

Edit: Also, you may want to obfuscate the fraudulent link so it doesn't get spidered by the search engines

Was hoping for something not made up by an author.

Please quote my post for posterity. You should probably also obfuscate the fraudulent link so it won't get scanned by the search engines.

Why would it need quoting?
I want to be out of this thread as soon as possible, so I will delete my original messages. At the same time I want everyone to be warned against referring to that fraud.

Please re-edit your post to obfuscate the working http link I accidentally left in the open.

I will delete this message to once somebody quotes it.

Nice catch. Have you reported the post to the mods? I'm taking a look at the bitcoin discussion board right now. Let's see what I find.
