Good Morning Gentle Readers:
Last Sunday morning I hear the House Blond, age six, hollering Ew and Gross at high decibel. Heard the pitter patter of That Boy's feet as he ran to her room and then joined her for a whole chorus of Ew's. Figuring the dog had barfed or there was a dead something near the door, Mrs TWC sauntered down the stairs and was horrified at what she saw on the computer screen.
Katie had typed Oops I Did It Again into Google, which is something she does frequently, because she likes to listen to snippets of Bubble Gum MP3's that are available on those bopper web sites. This time she clicked on some link that took her into a porn site, which then hijacked her browser so that each time she tried to leave the site another porn site popped up. In the space of two minutes she had 12 or 15 porn pages open.
Apparently, the illegality of hihacking browsers when the user tries to close a page isn't high on these guys list of website maintennance priorities.
I really was surprised and honestly didn't think this would be an issue for another two or three years at least. Needless to say I changed the settings in preferences. I don't care that Google filters too much. The medium setting didn't filter nearly enough.
Jake wanted to know if those were real people doing that stuff to each other.
Not sure what his mother told him.
