I got this mail in my flickr box. According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NowPublic), it's a "user-generated social news website." and "Time magazine named NowPublic.com one of the Top 50 websites of 2007." Has anyone any idea if this is legit, or a scam?? edit: I should point out that the removed links below are www.NowPublic.com/import/ with some numbers and stuff after the /.
