Turns out it's Miami-Heat-Ticket.com - which doesn't really exist, but
you get there from Miami-Heat-Tickets.net, whose back-end is on
eventinventory.com. Apparently they use something called "Tix2000"
which is like outlook for being a middle-man in the wild world of
selling and buying too-good-to-be-true basketball tickets .
I imagine if we had a reputation system that allowed us to mark up
different web pages there'd be a note next to various web pages
regarding their business quality. That'd be pretty useful, but I
hesitate to send information about what web sites I'm visiting out
into the world. It's the sort of hairy problem the freenet people are
probably solving, if anyone used it except child pornographers and
people wanting to download mp3's or book warez really slowly. Has
anyone used the new version? Is it good?
