{ Sorry, you must be logged in to see this text! }

This has a bunch of titles of NASCAR articles from websites and blogs, including my own blog and several others from Foxsports.com. It's weird because it's only got the titles and the first line or two of the articles, and the hyperlinks don't go anywhere. What's the point of such a website? Should I be annoyed? There isn't any contact info on the site.

For a group of fans who probably just discovered the internet last Tuesday, I'd say it's not half bad.

These are ad-based sites that just collect RSS and ATOM feeds on specific topics in order to draw traffic and collect ad revenue. Even my crappy blog has ended up on a couple of these.

That made me laugh out loud. Just LOL, not ROTFLMAO - but still funny.

The site looks like it exists to trap innocent web searchers and serve them ads. I see this a lot with links to my DVD articles. I never see more than 1 or 2 hits from these kinds of places at a time, though, so I can't see how anybody scores any kind of success with this technique - but then, people who do this are probably setting up THOUSANDS of virtual sites on the same machine, all running variants of the same nonsense.

EDIT: See? What he said.
I forgot to add that there IS a contact listed in their WHOIS info if you're really bored/ambitious but it's probably not worth your effort and I'd be really surprised if they had the technical wherewithall to exclude your site at your request.

That's pretty much what I figured. The only reason that I was even asking is that it ended up being the first link when I Google'd the thing, and then after that it was just odd.

Sentinel.SYS does appear to be a valid Windows process. I don't know whether you have to have it running, but it doesn't appear to be harmful. It's made by Rainbow Technologies. It looks like the software that runs a hardlock dongle:
