SpotBit.com: Shockingly Still Up

fhm_jenny_mccarthy.gifWe took a handful of bets in the “How Long Will SpotBit.com Last?” contest involving what we still think is an illegal Web site offering free PDF downloads of roughly 150 current magazines. Guess ranged from “-5:00 min.” to “1 Day” to “No guess, that’s just unbelievable.”

Well, it appears to be up, and as a reader of Barnako.com points out, our hunch about its legality or lackthereof seems to be validated by this statement on its registration page:

“We just need your email address so that we are able to keep you inform in case we are moving to other address.”
