Default Spyware sites at Motorcycle.com

Moderators and/or Editors, a question: the last week or so I have begun seeing site links on Motorcycle.com being blocked by our company firewalls and filters. The message is that these are known spyware sites. I can't (obviously) tell you what the ads or sites are, but I have never seen this before. So wassup wif dat?

I get that as well - but the "blocker" message just says something about "Offensive, Pornographic, or Non-Work-Related Materials", blah-blah-blah, etc.....

I'm not sure what links you meant, but something is going on inside MO's software that churns out spam links. They are obvious because the original post shows some very odd non-MO link. We mods keep killing them as spam, and the admins are trying to track it down.

I think they're coming in with the ads, primarily the one that sits at the top of the page.

My company firewall regularly blocks that spot, and occasionally the one on the right.

I just noticed MO was crashing the Safari browser like crazy. I started using Camino and disabling flash just so I could view MO!
