    I'm not sure how to classify this one.

    But basically I opened a buy.com ad in email, and when I clicked on the link for the 32" tv.
    http://enews.buy.com/cgi-bin5/DM/y/npGR0KRYTl0Ogf0CTzX0Gz

    I got a Buy.com item description for the tv, but in the middle of the ad was a small picture of bondage porn.
    If I try the same link from my desktop browser, I don't get that...
    I think its maybe one of the doubleclick ads...somehow in the G1 browser it brought up this stupid porn picture, but in Firefox 3 on my desktop it doesn't...
    anyone else see the same thing?

    note: I sent buy.com a message about this problem. I think its showing up where the flash advert should be. But since the G1 doesn't support flash..it shows this alternative.

    Sweet :D

    That's probably some dev being funny at best buy. It's always nice to see examples of internal sabotage at giant monolithic corporations.

    Edit:

    Dang I was thinking you'd said Best Buy. That would have been much sweeter than buy.com

    I had the same issue about a week ago. It was on my sportingnews.com fantasy team site and on some other sites I used. I cleared my cache and history and it went away.
