    I am urging trapshooters to stop using the google search engine. They have a site, that they run, called google/group (http://www.google.com/group/) This site is to ditribute unsolicated e-mail, that contains PORN site links
    .
    I have went to google and under there privcy link, ask them to control the use of google/group. They have not replyed.

    Use Yahoo, ask or any of the other search engines. This seems to be the only way,that this invasion of your privacy can be bought to googles attention.

    A while back, when going to my Gun Club's website, I was redirected to a most disgusting porn site. I had Google for my home page. This happened most of a day.

    Here in Va you can check your lotto ticket by calling 1-800-243-luck. Some older people would miss dial the number by replacing the l with a f and its a porno number. I would love to have seen their faces. LOL.

    Funny thing happened last week on the local radio talkshow (local host, Youngstown/Warren Ohio area): the caller was responding to the GM Lordstown Plant people who were frustrated about not being able to reach the Unemploment Office because of the mass numbers of new claimants. Gave a number to the host, he had announced it, and, 5 minutes later the host came on the radio and said forget that number, it was apparently a phone sex number. You had to be there. BT-100dc

    Some legit websites get redirected to porn sites because the site owners were duped by web hosting providers.<br>
    <br>
    What happens is the site owners say, hey, this company is offering FREE web hosting, and forgetting "caveat emptor" and TANSTAAFL, they sign up and start their website.<br>
    <br>
    After a while, their users, or if a business their potential customers, get redirected to porn sites. Not all visitors, but a percentage of them. Often the site owner is unaware of this until a complaint finally happens, or they post their link and a website bans them for posting porn links.<br>
    <br>
    Most of these scams are done with servers in Russia.
