    That (wookie furums) link redirects to some spam sites.

    Correct URL is Ingress Forums • Index page which redirects to the same forum as Ingress Forums • Index page
    Although not much activity there... I think I would prefer to spend time on Google+ where all the action is...

    I would stay away from any sites using the cu.cc or co.cc domain.

    Cheers for the tip, I didn't know about them, but a little bit of research reveals all...

    The CO.CC company offered two free co.cc subdomains, as well as bulk discounts for ordering as many as 15,000 domain names at a time. These domains have been used by spammers to create spam blogs, or "splogs," often with nonsense names like "extensitiesdiminutal.co.cc" and the like but all registrants were in fact subject to a terms of service prohibiting standard illegalities.
    Step-by-step instructions for registrants on how to use well known hosting services like Blogger, Windows Live, and Google Apps were included on its homepage.
    Due to previously large use by website spammers of sub-domains from co.cc, in July 2011 Google removed over 11 million .co.cc websites from its search results. Google's JohnMu recommended that individuals who have legitimate sites (in line with Google's Webmaster Guidelines) on the .co.cc subdomain send a reconsideration request to Google to have their specific site excluded from the ban.
    The abundance of cheap .co.cc domains has also been used by those who sell fake "anti-virus" programs.[6]
    As of November 2012, the co.cc website and name servers are no longer online. There was no formal statement by the company, but they did stop accepting new registrations some time before they closed.
