    MSN.com blocks link to Knoppix

    I sent a friend an e-mail with a link to this site (At least I think it was this site. Anyway it was a site about Knoppix.) He told me that when he clicked on the link MSN blocked him with a message saying the link wasn't safe. I assume he was able to click "OK" or some such and go anyway.

    Anyone else had such an experience?

    I think that Mr. Knopper may well have fashioned Linux into something that could mean the end of Windows, and indeed the end of Operating Systems as they've always been done.

    Perhaps the problem is with Microsoft. It is possible that they are blocking all links since IE is broken...

    MSN/AOL

    MSN and their new pet dog AOL are just screwin with ya.

    For a while now they have vblocked mail from what they refer to as unsafe domains... like my own email server.

    What can YOU do...
    1) Stop using MSN/AOL and any of their protcols like hotmail or AOL messenger etc.
    2) tell your friends to stop
    3) repeatedly refuse to sign up!!

    works for me!!

    Well I just sent a cut-n-paste link [from firebird!] to this very page from my Yahoo account to my AOL email.....and it came right up in the AOL browser with no questions asked!!!

    Must have been a bad AOL day...or AOL's over active filters not liking your IP address!!!

    AOL 9.0 uses Internet Expolrer for the browser [thankfully it's got pop-up blockers!!!] so there no sabotage in IE...yet.

    As for MSN, I would almost expect that behavior from THEM!!! [ha, ha, ha...evil cackle...]
