Corner readers are just unbelievably smart. Regarding the Lasik@Home site I discussed, e-mailer Raymond informs me:
“This is a different kind of scam than you may have thought. It is a Google ad scam, not a consumer scam. The order button doesn’t actually work – try it. Instead, the novelty of the site gets people to pass it around the internet and post it in places like The Corner. Increased traffic generates money from all the Google ads that appear on the site.”
Meanwhile, the merchandise link does work, and I intend to order my t-shirt anon.
