Why are all these people asking us for warranty checks? Does Seagate have a link to us? Is this a practical joke, played either on us or the poor souls who are looking to us to check their warrantees? :??:

Or is it self-perpetuating: people search for warranty check and find these threads? The titles are almost always "<brand> Warranty Check."

They do a web search, and click on the first link. Same way people ask for pogo, hotmail and sims help without looking what site they are actually on.

That was one of my guesses, the self-perpetuating one, but I just checked Google and we came up fourth, behind correct links. Not on the page at all for "Seagate Warranty." Maybe it's just one of life's mysteries?
