I saw a commercial on TV that just said whoismrrobot.com. When I go on the website it shows a CMD style text asking me if it wants me to know a secret. I select yes and a short video appears. Then some gut named Mr Robot kept writing CMD style messages and then asks for my E-Mail address but I did not want to risk going any further because I fear that this is some sort of hacking method. Anyone have any idea what kind of messed up website this is? Please respond with a reasonable answer.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

That's at least fine because I thought this was a website meant to cause viruses or run by hackers or cybercriminals. Another theory I came up with was that it was run by the US Government or NSA and was meant to spy on us taking away our freedom. I am at least now relieved that it is just for some TV show. There is another website I sometimes visit called Telehack which is based on a Telnet client which I thought would be related to this.
