Beware the ‘singles’ sign spammers

Singles sign Many of Northfield’s busy intersections got yellow signs saying “Single? NothfieldSingles.ORG” planted on all corners over the weekend. Nothing’s revealed on the website about who’s doing this but a quick check shows other towns nearby are likely getting hit, too.

See faribaultsingles.org and redwingsingles.org. The domain names are registered to overseas addresses. Isn’t this a violation of Northfield’s sign ordinance?

    Tyson,

    That was a really great link to an interesting story. Almost 9,000 domains… pretty amazing. Thanks for sharing. I never would have guessed.

    I laughed when I saw these.
    I thought they said “NorthfieldSinglesOMG” when I first saw one.
