Ken Lay Clicker

There was a post the other day to Boing Boing concerning the fact that Ken Lay is paying to have links to his defense placed on Google and Yahoo. A friend of mine wrote a brief example of how to automatically click the links using Perl and I thought I could probably do better. Below is my attempt at it – uses a proper User Agent, proper referrers and bounces through multiple, anonymous, proxies to get the job done. Thank goodness for WWW::Mechanize.
