Kicking Kickstarter  
Penny Arcade has started a Kickstarter project.

The goal? If they get $250,000, they'll remove one ad from their homepage for one year. For $525,000, they'll remove all ads from their homepage for one year. For $999,999, they'll remove all ads from their site for one year.

The rewards? For $300, one of them will friend you on Twitter for a year. For $1,000, one of them will friend you on Xbox Live for a year.

Is it a joke? Is it serious? Does the distinction even matter when nearly a thousand people have already pledged nearly $66,000?

The day is coming when someone uses Kickstarter to conduct an act of fraud so flagrant that the site will collapse like a house of cards.

For now, we need to be content with less obvious forms of fraud...
