A major media outlet not doing background checks on its contributors? What's next, the Secret Service bringing drugs and hookers to a hotel that's supposed to be secure? Oh wait.

I can't believe they don't meet the people in person before they hire them on.  Although, her stuff on ESPN wasn't shady, it was the stuff she and her buddy was pulling using ESPN's name behind the scenes that was shady.

I think the better question would be:  Is There an ESPN Columnist Who ISN'T Scamming People on the Internet?

This story is really bizzarre.  Did anyone read the link in the updates?  Where she was going to buy the guy's twitter account for 500 bucks?  That is really interesting too.  Nothing like a good scandal.

I didn't know people bought or stole twitter accounts.  Seems like a waste of time.

Twitter and Facebook are both incredibly strong promotional tools; especially compared to e-mail mailing lists. Thus, largely followed accounts are worth quite a bit of money to marketers/advertisers.

I don't even know what this is about but it is blowing my mind.  Totally wasting my work day reading this stuff.  Need more.

As much as I hate to admit it, this Nilesh Prasad stuff is commonplace. It's called fraud, most people from the motherland are actually very good at it, because they don't come off as idiots claiming to be Nigerian Princes.

It makes me sick and embarassed to associate myself as "Indian" with these phonies.
