Yes, was aware of symantec listing that ... maybe because of some spam that was present, I see no harm and no redirects at all let alone fake ones, anyway Howard is on it to get things de-listed again.

This seems to happen everytime we get spammed and it's left for longer than about 20 minutes. I hate to think what Symantec's crawlers are doing to the performance of the site.

I don't really understand what is going on. Those redirects are there on purpose to help out the search engines. It saves our site cycles because these links don't get SIDs, so one less data base access and one less active session.

If we take them out, the 90% of our search engine links won't work.
