Reminds me of an old joke when I was in college. I used to have this in
Free UNIX accounts. Telnet to 127.0.0.1. Use your existing
user ID and password to login.
I got a lot of mail from concerned-but-clueless people warning me that
this may be a criminal trying to harvest passwords.
Of course, the joke is far less effective today, when most people on the
internet are not using UNIX systems.
