    Outwar.com is about the newest and most annoying site I have come across... Its a game where you have this so called monster, thug or popstar and your mission is to actually get other folks to click the link to your character in order for it to grow in some way. Go into any AIM chatroom and now almost 75% of the links are for this damn site! In fact people even set up other sites so that the links look valid but then redirect you to outwar.com! The player to get the most hits wins something like in prizes or in cash but what the heck is it all for? Are they downloading spyware on our computers we just don't have the signature files for yet? This site is fishy at best!

    IRC chatrooms too. I hope someone takes that server's IP address and [not posted because Paul would kill me] !!!!!

    It's just some idiot game to get people hitting the site as "recruits" so they can win an xbox. I don't know what the point is for the site. Maybe for banner views so they can rake in more money or something.

    Seen way too many of those damnable links; been deleting them and officially banning them at my online-gaming squad's forum...

    I guess advertising pay-per-click is the deal... Looks like it anway I've clicked one or two before on accident and didn;t notice any strange traffic through Sygate.
