February Commenter of the Month Competition Winner!


ompetition time again!

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 ninth month of the competition in February and are now in the tenth, starting a few days ago on March 1st – Sponsored by GFI.

We are offering some pretty cool prizes like iPods and PSPs (or similar), 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 February…it’s eM3rC! eM3rC had a massive comment spree last month and obliterated the nearest competitor by a clear 52 comments.

Pantagruel I thought it was your turn! And you had enough comments to win in a normal month

    I would like to start this post by saying thank you Darknet for this awesome site and for holding these types of competitions. Next up, zupakomputer and Pantagruel (and you to J. Lion/goodpeople). Thank you guys for the great discussions and I hope to keep them up. Lastly I would like to thank everyone else for visiting and commenting on this site because it is truly a great place to congregate.

    I would also like to mention, my posts were not spam. They had a purpose and were almost always insightful.

    Other than that, thank you everyone and hope to see you posting soon!

    -Is there anyone out there who can beat the Darknet record of 122 posts? Only time will tell ;)-
