Two things have happened this morning that are strange. Both concern articles with titles that begin with "9 Things....". In the first instance, the article was about the downside of RVing. I was told it was being removed because the editor did not feel it was a good fit for my RV site! The second was even worse. I got notice that the article had been copied, but when I clicked on the link, it took me to a porn site! I can't file a DMCA because I'm afraid that if I enter the site I'll get a lot of nasty spam, but I can't file the DMCA becaue I can't get the http for the site if I dont enter it! I have contacted the team about both issues but am wondering if anybody else is having or has had similar problems and how you handled them.
You don't have to click on the site. Just type the domain name in here: https://www.whois.net/
For example: hubpages.com is this domain. Leave off the https://
Then you should be able to find the host or even sometimes contacting the registrar works too.
Having said all that... if it redirects to a porn site, it's not going to affect your traffic anyway.
Thanks. If the word "removed" is on the warning, does this mean HP already removed it? I sure didn't.
The page it goes to is not the page where the article is shown. It's a page warning people who don't want to see nutiity, etc from entering. Can't get to the article.
unless they click through to the porno site! As I said...weird!
As you say, its a doorway page so unless you go through you don't know if your material is there or not. I would just DMCA it anyway.
I would do that if I can get an http address because obviously there would be numerous articles within the site. Just using the http of the doorway won't work.
Oh wow, I have never had this happen. Perhaps you have a virus on your computer?
Sometimes I click the cache instead of the URL. Your results may vary.

Inspired by the director of the America Skeptics Michael Shermer's talk on TED: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8T_jwq9ph8kWhy do so many people choose to believe ridiculous things when there's so much evidence against them?! On these forums I have discussed vampires, creationism, homeopathy and...

A friend and I were driving from Taylor to ShowLow, Arizona. We pulled off of the road to stretch and we saw a big light with a small directly above. We thought it was stars, but the big light circled around the small one, stopped directly below it, then the small one dropped straight down into the...
