So you support phishing websites? Or is it only ok because the victims are people on the wrong side of the political aisle?
With some URL rewriting and a few properly formatted links www.wikipedia.com. I could trick you into going to the wrong
page and even donating to someone. Maybe I could trick those dirty liberals at the ACLU, they're ruining conservative America. That's 100% ok with
you right? How about if I make a website that looks like the NRA's donate page but actually donates to a group that's opposed to gun control? Still
ok? What if I just pocket the money instead?
All of this is just stealing because it's taking money from people from a purpose other than what they agreed to.

Let me clearly address everything in a simple yet informative way to end the misuse of the term "PHISHING"
No i do not support phishing websites, i was a victim of ID theft.
Coincidentally you linked to wikipedia yet you still do not understand what happened? There was no DNS modifications, no packets were stolen or
modified...it was not a clever mistype-scam website like faecbook.com which could copy said facebook design and steal passwords....
It was a website designed to target political idiots who have no right to donate to any political agenda, rightly so, based on their inability to read
before throwing money around. It wasn't a scam site where you get hooked on 10 ez payments of 9.99 and there was absolutely no trickery going on with
"fine print" and double meanings. Adults are *expected* to read any and all contracts/paperwork we sign...
:Example: (because people need pictures painted for them)I fail to see how you can look at an advertisement depicting Obama and not read the talking
points attached to the picture and throw a fit when you end up donating to some Obammer is the Devil 666 Anti Christ goofy organization.
Once more, it was not a "phishing" attack. you people need to stop throwing around words and misusing them so egregiously it's not a good look.
e: everything you said would be illegal to do, so its comparing apples to elephants. you would be going out of your way to steal data and by your own
defition be a phisher. this website was not designed to mimick another rival site...it's not setup to be accessed by means of a common typo --
youtube vs yuotube and lastly, and most importantly, the INTENTION of the site is clear as day if you take the 20 seconds to read it? Once again i am
