June 2008 Commenter of the Month Competition Winner!

Outsmart Malicious Hackers


Competition time again!

As you know we started the Darknet Commenter of the Month Competition on June 1st 2007 and it’s been running since then! We have just finished the thirteenth month of the competition in June and are now in the fourteenth, starting a few days ago on July 1st – Sponsored by GFI.

We’ve successfully been holding this contest for a year now!

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 (5000+ spidered by Google).

So announcing the winner for June…it’s Navin!

Comments for June picked up towards the middle of the month with a relative (but very active newcomer taking the throne with more than double the second place, which was May’s winner Bogwitch).
