The Black Spider Club
The Black Spider Club bills itself as "the worlds most exclusive club".

"We are not listed on any search engine, and we do not publicise ourselves, for you to have found this site means you were referred by one of our illustrious members."

I haven't been able to find any info about what this 'club' actually is. It indeed doesn't appear in any search engines. So maybe it's really a club, or maybe it's an alternative reality game. I don't know. But if it is a club, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't accept me as a member. (thanks to Steve Combe for the link)

Meh.. given that the URL is 'Dabizkit', I'm inclined to think it's probably some sort of viral ad for something silly.

Sounds almost like an allusion to Isaac Asimov's Black Widowers club.

And I'd bet that now it has garnered the attention of MOH... it'll show up on search engines now!!!

I did a quick WhoIs check on the domain name.

The address given there does not exist. The postcode is not valid according to the Royal Mail, and a search for the address "Bizkit Lane" finds nothing.

But maybe thats all part of the secret.......

That was a real club Asimov belonged to (if you believe what you read) called The Trapdoor Spiders. He based the Black Widowers on the real one.

No clue about this Black Spider Club, though.

It's fake......If they were so private, why would they say who they are.....Looks to me like someone is wanting to meet celeberties.

Umm...Bizkit? Like Limp Bizkit? Isn't that how they spelled that?

I remember going to this club in Jax once, and this loud band is playing...and I'm telling my friend Mike this has to be the worst band I've EVER heard....a couple of months later I heard that band on the radio...Limp Bizkit had their first single.

Anywho...Maybe they're releasing a new CD or something.

God almighty.
Another CD of Limp Bizkit.
(Brief OT, I once saw a kid wearing a hoody that said 'Limp Bizkit are better than you'. I ended up leaning against a wall wheezing with laughter. Ahhh, happy days.)

But yes, the fact that they're called 'Dabizkit' could well be a hint.

this site is real!!!! theres been a little bit of talk about it recently in London,its nothing special I heard its just a place where "famous" people use a chat room and get told where all the VIP parties are etc

i doubt any BIG name celebs use the site,and when I emailed them they seemed pretty real.I think they use "thebiskit" as a kind of cover name

I tried to link to the Black Spider Club today and a message appears indicating that the address for their website has changed. It instructs the user to check their welcome package for the new address.

If they are giving out secret welcome packages with the new address, how is anybody going to the old defunct one, besides people like us, anyway?

I put it in quotes and I Googled it and this is what I found: http://www.citybizdirectory.net/Wolven.html
Apparently their thing about not being on any search engine is baloney.
