    Learning the obvious...

    Anyone ever type a familiar url slightly wrong and end up with messed up results?

    I'm talking about stuff like typing "gamefaq.com" and getting a korean porn site (don't know or care if its still there). Or typing cboard.cprogramming.net and getting an obscene number of popups wanting to change your homepage to strange places. Just did the latter and felt like ranting.

    Does anything happen or is it just error 404? I'm more interested in the weird stuff than the errors.

    [edit]So they covered for that mistake apparently. Interesting...[/edit]
