Clearly somebody doesn't really want the world to know the project exists yet. So its an odd way to get testers...

After that picture, it better be Lolcats Online.

I've waited so long...so long.

Seems like a win-win to me. The developer appeals to a community that is likely to be interested and reasonably familiar with MMO concepts. The developer essentially gets some free marketing and speculation (yes, I realize that building interest for an unknown game by an unknown developer is only vaguely "marketing," but I'm guessing it will help). And Massively gets to be the awesome tooth fairy handing out beta invites, and gets lots of page views.

Seems like a good way to get testers to me :)

Do I get a cookie for getting the subject line correct the first time if I don't get in the first 100? I even included the period at the end! ;)

I tossed in some jibberish in the body of my email, so as not to leave it empty. I hope that doesn't disqualify me as a "serious" tester :).

D'oh, missed the period. Oops. This sounds interesting, at least!
