Basically, the idea here is to make a non-functional admincp login page, to fool people into thinking they have the right URL when they really don't.
A few questions. First, exactly what personal data would be edited out? This is going to be an html file then, not php? And, is the idea to use this page as your listed admincp page in the config.php? Or do you have the real ACP in the newly renamed directory in the config and put the fake page in the /admincp folder in case somebody navigates directly to that path?
