For no reason what so ever, some folks in one of my social networks are trying to test (very unscientifically) how well they can manipulate searches.

The goal is to associate the phrase "right to bear arms" with Neil Krasovec's home page by linking to it from our blogs and homepages. None of us are gun nuts. Neil isn't a gun nut or an anti-gun nut. It's just a totally random attempt to steal search placement for that phrase. I'm dubious as to whether this will work but I'm always keen to participate in distributed projects.

Here are some other folks that are doing this:
mattborn, sendhil, data, data2, wolfgang, wolfgang2, wolfgang3, peil, peil2, peil3. The pages at wolfgang2 and wolfgang3 are the pages that I get the most google hits for so I figured it'd help to list this link on those because they must have high page rank.
