Re: THE REFERRING SITE LINKED TO THE COW HIGHJACKED YOUR BROWSER

Nick,

It looks as if when you clicked the link from the site that was listing our content, THEY highjacked your browser and ran a spam script on you. It sure wasn't coming from here.

There have NEVER been TWO ads in a row to get to anything in our site, let alone 16. And there is ALWAYS a "skip this ad" link both above and below the ad. We do not hide the links as Yahoo and others do when they have interstitial ads.

If you did not have an easy "skip this ad" link above and below the ads, they were not coming from us and they were not our ads.

It is very rare for anything even akin to something like this actually happening at the COW and when an ad issue arises it is always one of three things:
  • Either you have turned off cookies in your browser, or
  • You have not updated your browser software in a long time and are running a version that has little support for the new HTML protocols, or
  • You are running ad blocking and anti-spam/spyware software that always screws up sites like ours that have ads.

But I suspect that the site you mentioned that had a link to our site highjacked your browser when you clicked the link they had pointing to our content.

Best regards,
