Maybe he has a fork on the real github.com and the link was a mistake.

I think it's possible that 'Kevin' is for real and maybe he doesn't realize he linked to a phishing site, if it was an accident.  If this is the same person, then he's blind, and maybe that's why he wrote 'U R L' instead of the usual 'URL', by using speech to text or some other assistive tech.  It might be that he tried to fork github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin and just provided the wrong link.  But regardless, stay away from the one with two Bs in it.

Thanks,
Laszlo

I guess I'll need to register a domain for it an get a page going and link from there.  I just haven't gotten around to it but will do that.  I'll get going!  Just know that I would never set up fishing; that's not my style.
