    When people Rick roll each other, they can like change the url link to a different name. How do you do this? Like when I click on a link that says like www. fdksjfjs .com it leads me to the rickroll site. How do I do this can anyone explain this to me?

    You guys shouldn't be showing eaching other how to rickroll.

    Noobs eat it up and think it's hilarious.

    Mods should start to ban the Rick Rollers.

    Thanks, also is there a way to do this on msn? Like I want to send it to me friend on msn and have the link in the form of www. thesimpsons .com
    Is there anyway to do this or does it only work on forums?

    If you don't find it funny and you have firefox, then get NoScript.

    I actually think the youtube video is still funny. I sometimes pull it up just for a laugh.

    But anyone who links to the one that screws up your browser, like the one in your sig, is just an asshat, and deserves to be suspended from a forum that is frequented by mostly decent members.

    Ask yourself why you take pleasure from doing something that deliberately screws with people. [​IMG]
