BugMeNot username for Boston.com

I was just catching up on the lastest mooninite bomb hoax nonsense from boston.com, and when I used BugMeNot's Firefox extension to login, the username it provided me with was "mooninite1312007@yahoo.com". Very appropriate.

Two plead not guilty to Boston hoax charges - CNN.com

In a news conference, Rich told reporters he had advised his clients not to discuss the incident. Stevens and Berdovsky took the podium and said they were taking questions only about haircuts in the 1970s.
