Validation for posting random stuff

Two years ago, I wrote a post in which I [quoted some Craigslist / Paypal phishing scam emails](/journal/2009/08/19/paypal-is-the-vehicle-for-scams-on-craigslist/). Since then, it has received over 42,000 page views and 35 related comments. I am compelled to post about things that I think will help people (and, frankly, about things that annoy me); I rely on web search for much of my online research, and it feels good participate in the community.
