Myst Online: Uru Live moves away from the typical leveling found in online games in favor of a compelling story which is told through venues such as an in character website coupled with the puzzles that are a hallmark of the Myst franchise." top

The problem has grown so large that in addition to the police having dedicated cyber terror units, the South Korean government will enact a law next year forcing South Koreans to reveal their name and ID before posting online. However some ISPs want the government to go further and to ban some people from being able to log onto the internet at all." top

Although this isn't good news for television stations that rely on ad revenue, as they are finding companies are turning towards Google instead. One of the main attractions of Google over traditional television is that Google is able to better tracking in the effectiveness of their ads. It is becoming apparent in the UK that television needs to evolve, however no-one is sure how it can." top

The point to this is to hand out a gmail invite to the person who completes a challenge you set. The challenge may involve finding some obscure tid-bit on a website to posting a picture with Kerry holding some corn. Anyone can post a challenge. The idea is similar to gmail swap, but I don't get anything in return. (Also feel free to put a link in your signature).
Here's one from me:
In the game ArmageddonMUD which race primarily speaks Allundean? First person to answer gets a free invite. If you put up an answer provide your e-mail address (although feel free to disguise it such as having lysm@___h__o__t__m__ail.com delete the _).
