My corporate nanny barfed on a link in a post. The link appeared to be to Amazon.com, but actually went to viglink.com, who directly or indirectly redirected to rd.connexity.net.

The nanny my corporate overlords use is zscalar. I’ve asked them to review the connexity site, but I assume what happened is that some other customer of connexity had some bad content.

I’m not really sure what you get out of several levels of indirection on a link to Amazon, but in this case, it cost me a warning from my company that I was doing something inappropriate.

At first I wondered how was this wood working related and then I realized where you’d posted this. I work for a organization that is super concerned about security so I understand your frustration.

Doesn’t look like a place any windows user would want to visit…
