it's all pretty phishy

If you're scared about accidentally giving out your electronic banking, PayPal or eBay login information by visiting a fake site (although if you're silly enough to click on a link in an HTML only email with dubious spelling then perhaps it's for the best), check out the Netcraft Toolbar - it gives you an instant rating on the site, and your reports can help others. Only available for IE but Now available for IE and Firefox users (and hopefully other browsers soon), the information is being made available to other systems so hopefully over time we'll see this sort of protection becoming more ubiquitous...
