    I am interested to see how all this pans out. There has been plenty of further mention of this - even on A Current Affair.

    In a follow up article in The Gympie Times; in relation to her alleged cybersquatting, Mrs Allen says:

    But in the next breath she says:

    (Bolding is mine).

    As they say in the classics, 'There's no such thing as bad publicity'. Since this furore, her site visits have apparently gone through the roof. :rolleyes:

    Yeah it is kind of like this article in the news the other week. The firm in who is mentioned in the article is one of the worst for spam driven SEO work on a huge scale. One search for them on Google will show you a Whirlpool thread with 1000s of ripped off customers.

    I read that Gympie article - someone commented that it's 'illegal to redirect' I've never heard that. I redirect alot of sites

    Does anyone here have any legal knowledge about redirection or is the calico goose who commented on the article leading us into a wild goose chase?
