I can't wait for them to find the haiku thread.

At this point, I'm wondering if the spam filter can be instructed to automatically delete all threads with "Superman Zod mask" in the title.

Flagged/banned. Wish I had time to investigate further into the spam filter issue, but things are pretty crazy at the Image office.

Understood. Didn't mean to complain or anything. For the record, I think you guys do a great job.

Don't know if this is "spam", technically, but...

Lately I have found that, often, when I use Google instead of the A&F search engine (just to make sure that the term I'm searching for isn't one of the terms that A&F ignores), clicking on the A&F link provided by Google takes me *not* to A&F but, instead, to a link like this <http://url4short.info/f108fd7c>. But if I go back to the Google search results and then click on the link to A&F again, I get through to A&F all right.

Does anyone here know why this might be happening? And is it happening to anyone else, or just me?

 

This has started happening to me again. Google site search was working fine for several months, but now I'm getting the automatic "url4short.info" redirect again.

Me too. I get a giant blue blinking square with 'This is not a joke' and a smiley face inside it. (I think it tells me I've won a prize.) When I click on the back arrow it takes me directly to the site though, so I don't really mind.

Same here; I mentioned it a couple days ago here.

As far as I can tell, the "url4short" redirect (when making a Google search of A&F) has remained constant since last noted. However, this week it started redirecting me to a porn site.

 

Is there anything at all that can be done to fix this?!

Thanks, Nathan. We've been discussing this on a thread on FB and I believe that Opus is working on it as he can. Hope to resolve it soon.

This has happened to me as well, on both my home computer and work. There's nothing like going to Arts and Faith and having "adult friend finder" pop up instead.  :(

Yeah, Eremyjohnstone's posts elsewhere are all bizarre word soup-type things.
