I've heard all about "phishing".....bogus e-mails hoping to trick you into divulging sensitive info.
I also understand the meaning of the name..."fishing"...as in laying the bait and seeing who takes the hook.
And I know that people do it because....well....there have been crooks since the beginning of time.
But what I want to know is why is it spelled PHishing? as opposed to simply "FISHing"?
Was there a reason for this spelling? Did someone have an axe to grind with the musical group of the same name? Was someone just trying to be cute? Perhaps they failed English class?
Or is this simply the work of computer geeks desperate to leave some kind of mark on the world?
