October Commenter of the Month Competition Winner!

Keep on Guard!


Competition time again!

We unfortunately lost quite a few comments due to the server crash in early October, but activity after that was pretty good with some excellent quality comments.

As you know we started the Darknet Commenter of the Month Competition on June 1st and it ran for the whole of June and July. We have just finished the fifth month of the competition in October and are now in the sixth, starting starting a few days ago on November 1st – Sponsored by GFI.

We are offering some pretty cool prizes like iPods and PSPs, along with cool GFI merchandise like shirts, keyrings and mugs.

And now the winner will also get a copy of the Ethical Hacker Kit.

GFI Goodies

Keep up the great comments and high quality interaction, we really enjoy reading your discussions and feedback.

Just to remind you of the added perks, by being one of the top 5 commenter’s you also have your name and chosen link displayed on the sidebar of every page of Darknet, with a high PR5 (close to 6) on most pages (4000+ spidered by Google).

So announcing the winner for October…it’s dre! dre left us with some excellent insight, links and really high quality comments.
