    Just thinking aloud here, Does it really help with "security" having a false front Page , and do the necessary Re-direction to the eventual Login ?

    Depends on what your notion of "security" is, I suppose. For most sites, simply reading the review here on FST should tell you it's a fake page, and sometimes how to get through it. Better than nothing, I guess
    "Come visit sometime, okay? We'll always be here for you. We... we all love you."

    Every little bit helps, at least it can't hurt. The important thing to remember is even though the most complicated fake login page won't fool everyone, it will fool some people and thats what matters. I remember with one tracker to even see the login page I had to type a few words into a search bar, if I didn't have my cookies set and I forgot those words I'd have to go back and check my email. That was okay since I was a member I had that email saved, if I wasn't a member just a curious onlooker it would be a little more challenging. Also a tracker review only gives away so much, not every secret can be found in a screenshot. Some of them stay pretty well between members.

    They do even less than using only acronyms to refer to sites. The chances of any random stumbling upon the url homepage of one of those sites is minimal, so anyone who arrives there probably knows what they are looking for.

    If it Does Not eally help. anyone that has an account are shown how to properly Login during the confirmation stage of the registrarion, why even bother with all the added work of coding to create a Redirection, that I don't think it really HELPS, IMHO


    P.s. That is why I like PrOn sites, every thing is "Nake" to the eye. No hiding of anything, No False Front.......LMAO

    It's essentially useless. Assuming the anti-p2p folks troll the internet for a classic TBDev or Gazelle login page is just dumb.

    These fake pages are nothing but a joke in the name of security.

    What's dumb is assuming that that is the reason behind fake pages.

    Exactly. It's more like "security through obscurity", and this "security" is pretty much NONE.
