IS THIS NORMALLY DONE? I received an email message a few days ago from someone who calls himself/herself “DMOZ Editor”, asking for a sample/test username and password + access code to the courses on my elearning portal.
The message was as follows:
From: DMOZ Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Date: Apr 28, 2007 9:05 AM
Subject: DMOZ – Requesting test username/password.
Site submitted: January 17, 2007
I am an editor at dmoz.org (DMOZ or ODP) and would like to see if it’s possible to have a sample/test username and password + access code? The courses seem very interesting, but for some sites we must be able to see some of their descriptions and what they offer before we can list them.
Rest assured, this username/password + access code will be kept purely confidential, and you can delete it at anytime.
