The page is 'encrypted' using URl encoding.

I used the following simple perl script (tnx to
http://tech-web.net/perl_memo.html)  to decode it.

foreach(<>) {
  print URLd($_);

sub URLd{
my $URLdecode=shift;
$URLdecode=~tr/+/ /;
return $URLdecode;}

$ perl ud < index.html |more 

The most noticable part is the following:

<form action=""
<!-- This is the email where they go -->^M
<input type="hidden" name="recipient"
value="JoshuaKneeland at email.com">^M
<!-- This is the email where they go.. end. -->^M
<input type="hidden"^M
    name="subject" value="gp says kristi is god"><input^M
    type="hidden" name="redirect"^M
    value="http://love.aol.com/LoveMain/"><input type="hidden"^M
    name="phish" value><table border="0" cellpadding="2"^M
    cellspacing="0" align="center">^M

Also notice the CR's to end lines and the fact that parts of
it are created with Frontpage: the signs of a true loser.
