anyone heard of Sisterwoman.com?

Has anyone heard of a social networking site called Sisterwoman.com? I got an email from them that might be legit, but I'm just not sure.

This is what the email said:
From: sisters@sisterwoman.com [mailto:sisters@sisterwoman.com]
Sent: Friday, November 16, 2007 4:52 AM
To: [Lexi's mundane name]
Subject: 2nd Request - A Girlfriend Has Invited you to Sisterwoman.com

One of your girlfriends has invited you to join her on Sisterwoman.com. Click here, sign up and join your girlfriend and this worldwide network of women who are supporting each other, loving life, and having fun as only “sisters” can.

Things that make me wary:

  • It was sent to my work email, but none of my co-workers has said "hey, I sent you an invite", emailed me with a heads-up, or anything like that.
  • It says "2nd Request" but I never received the first request. It didn't get caught by our gateway's spam filter or directed to my bulk or junk folders.
  • The hyperlinks (which are not live in the quoted text above) don't point to sisterwoman.com, they point to whatcounts.com.
  • All 4 of the hyperlinks point to the same URL at whatcounts.com. (Maybe that's not suspicious; maybe it's just stupid (IMO) coding.)

Am I being paranoid? Are my phishing antibodies working too hard?
