    super.nu's never ending special offers

    super.nu which has a horrible reputation here has "Today Only" Special Offers that never seem to end ( ) so I looked in thier HTML code and found this:

    Code:
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE = 'JavaScript'>
    <!--
    function makeArray() {
         for (i = 0; i<makeArray.arguments.length; i++)
              this[i + 1] = makeArray.arguments[i];
    }
    
    var months = new makeArray('January','February','March',
        'April','May','June','July','August','September',
        'October','November','December');
    
    var date = new Date();
    var day  = date.getDate();
    var month = date.getMonth() + 1;
    var yy = date.getYear();
    var year = (yy < 1000) ? yy + 1900 : yy;
    
    document.write(months[month] + " " + day + " " + year);
    
    //--></SCRIPT>
     at 12:00am Midnight EST.
    They seem to have a javascript that puts the date and 12AM there

    This has been happening all over, for at least 2 to 3 years.

    I used to have a few accounts with them years ago.
    I just had a big domain name dispute with them last month when they refused to give back a domain. (i won!)

    I just did a search now and realised they are well known for there slimey tactics!

    Do they ever post here?

    Hello
    I had not heard of them for a while and then this morning I noticed they were competing against us in a number of PPC directories.
    Interesting they should reappear like this.

    They also used to own the domain name http://wwwnetworksolutions.com/
    which I thought was quite funny.

    Those specials are just like the specials in Infomertials... "Call in the next 10 minutes and get this for free"...
