Ovid course is hot

Ovid's CGI Course is a big favorite at the CGI-Resources Index, so far pulling down a straight 10 of 10 rating among registered users at that site.

    Heh. Thanks for the plug. Now here's an amusing incident to reward you :)

    Shortly after my course went up, one of the registered users (who shall remain nameless) gave my course a rating of one. I was curious, so I did some poking around and managed to actually determine who this individual was and I sent them an email asking what they didn't like about the course and what I could do to improve it. What I did not mention was that they were involved in a "competing" resource and appeared to be downvoting everyone else. This violates the following request on the site: Do not vote for your own resource or a competitor's.

    Resources can be delisted if voting abuse is detected, so this person apparently became nervous and quickly changed his vote from a one to a ten, claiming "it was a mistake". Then, this person with a very unusual user name asked how I tracked him down. Apparently, he did not truly appreciate the power of Google.

      Let this be a lesson to all of you. Lesson one: Phear google. Lesson two: if you are attempting nefarious activitys, make sure your 'nom de plume' is not unique.
