    I was searching the net for 2n5460 spice model. And I must say most of the hits were OK. But some hits on the other hand was of a more lugubrious kind:eek:

    If this were on the forum I would call in a hijack and spam, and deal with it accordingly.

    The web address is smudged out, so I don't think there is any problem.

    I am all for internet freedom,especially after hearing that the people of canada can stand either with the government or with child molesters, but how is it legal for those words to even appear together?

    The other thing about current government control is that you were looking up a transistor, but with gov't tracking everything, someone can assume other things. Wouldn't browse adult sites for a while:eek:

    In a past job I had to explain my web history when I was looking up some potting material and goggled (or probably yahoo'ed) the company "emmerson cummings"

    I don't know why but the first 3 pages were all pron, and I did click the top one or two before I actually read the links.

    Warnings popped up on the server. Whoops.

    The mother site for this seams to be a site for bloggers. I have seen this before. Spammers post a spam post containing a long list "popular" search phrases. Which they hope Google will pick up. Then they add some bogus links they hope some will click on. But I am still puzzled by how the "2n5460 spice model" ended up among the more less questionable search phrases

    I have often noticed that some sites return bogus results of the string of characters you just typed. I don't know if that happens realtime or other people have googled the exact same phrase as you.

    I checked, it is still there. I didn't bother to click the link.

    Lots of cases these are virus traps. It would serve whoever right anyhow if it were.

    Problem is, lots of innocent sites are also virus traps. Google does try, but it is a contest.

    Are you certain you don't have spyware on your PC? I just did the same search and came up with no such results.

    It seems unlikely that this site would contain the exact phrase you searched.

    Well, google customizes your searches to find the best matches after looking at other sites you have accessed.... :eek:

    you might be right. I had something like this happen to me once. I don't know where it was picked up, but whenever I would go to a site it would pop up one of those **** links. It took a bit of work to get rid of. On the other hand, might be part of new and improved Google experience :p

    Well, yeah... [​IMG] Huh, To my defense must I say that I do not know what you are talking about. All this did happen then I was helping a friend ( his name is Jens by the way). I can not be held responsible for what this friend may or may not have done with his computer:p

    The cruise ship models also appeared on my google list.

    I used those exact words. However, when I search for spice models it's more like +"2n5460" +"spice model"

    The plus sign indicates that must be on the page. The quotations indicate all the words must appear in that exact order. It's just a habit that I always put quotations even for single words.

    If I wanted to omit the spice models, I would use -"spice model" and any page with those two words would not be shown. That's the way you keep garbage out of your searches.

    One of my earliest searches on the internet included PVC pipe back in the mid 90's. It's human nature to be distracted and as such, the internet does a wonderful job of distraction. The results for pvc pipe included erotic clothing. Yes, I was distracted from my primary search to see the revelence between the result and the search.

    Search words "2N5460 spice", I think it is the spice that did it.
