Re: Hijacks & Other Content Changes - Report Here

That entry was deleted several weeks ago, but the public pages haven't been updated yet. Once the bug stopping the updates is cleared, you'll see the listing vanish. :)

We always appreciate people reporting porn hijacks, as we like to rip them out as fast as possible. Unfortunately, the update bug isn't something we can control. :(

Re: Hijacks & Other Content Changes - Report Here ONLY

http://www.cheap-domain-names.ws/ and http://www.cheap-discount-domain-names.biz/ have both been removed from Computers: Internet: Domain Names: C already on July 5th. The only problem is that the public page hasn't been updated since, due to system works. But as soon as the category refreshes, those sites will not be listed any more.

http://www.cheap-domainregistration.com/ is still listed in Computers: Internet: Web Design and Development: Hosting: C. As I don't really know this business, would please another editor have a look into this one?

Yours,
Robert
I could see that the first 2 sites had already been removed but the last one (www.cheap-domainregistration.com) is still around. Just wondering if anyone will be checking on it as well.

Re: Hijacks & Other Content Changes - Report Here ONLY

Some probably hijacked sites:
http://www.web2000.cz/urban/ listed as Earth Smart Urban Living in https://curlie.org/Home/Urban_Living/ has porn links on bottom
http://www.web2000.cz/scout/ listed as Scout Knife Page in https://curlie.org/Recreation/Knives/Activities/ the same porn links on bottom
http://www.web2000.cz/unreal/ listed as Unreal Tournament in https://curlie.org/World/Czech/Hry/PC/Akcni/ tons of porn links on main page
http://www.web2000.cz/strategie/ listed as PC Games - Strategie in https://curlie.org/World/Slovensky/Hry/ porn links on top and bottom of page

Seems probably hacked whole server or what, maybe there is more such pages in index.

Adult Store In A Teen Girl's Category

An adult store with very explicit pictures is in a category for young girls. Please look at it as soon as you have time because young children might see this site.

http://dmoz.com/Shopping/Clothing/Teens/Girls/

Title: Candy Crush

I already e-mailed staff@dmoz.org about this but maybe the editors are too busy right now to read my e-mail so I posted it here because I think this should immediately be removed.
 

Re: Adult Store In A Teen Girl's Category

I've removed the listing. Thanks for pointing it out. :crazy:

Note that staff@dmoz.org goes to the ODP paid staff (who receive a whole lot of mail!). Posting here about this stuff is great, since many of the volunteers can handle these requests.

The site won't appear in any future RDF's, and will disappear from the public side when page generation is fixed (staff is working on it).

[note -- previous post is still pending]

Double thanks for your persistance. We really do appreciate reports like this...and try to show it by acting on them quickly. (When our new public page update system is working, you'll SEE the results quickly, sigh...)

For the record, <a href="mailto:staff@dmoz.org
goes to the professional staff, all both of them, and not to any editor. THEY are enormously overworked, and generally, anything the editors can do will get done more quickly if you communicate with "the editors" -- that is, this forum, where many editors can see it, and almost surely at least one will look into it.

Communicating with a particular category editor is good also...if that volunteer editor is active and checking mail, otherwise the message may get lost.

Re: Hijacks & Other Content Changes - Report Here ONLY

I believe this URL http://www.arubianainn.com/
Top: Regional: Caribbean: Aruba: Travel and Tourism: Lodging: Hotels
is listed under the incorret category.

Equivalent "studio" accommmodations are listed in the category:
Top: Regional: Caribbean: Aruba: Travel and Tourism: Lodging

Four of the resorts listed under
Top: Regional: Caribbean: Aruba: Travel and Tourism: Lodging: Hotels
are actually timeshare accommodations.
According to the description should these be in
Top: Regional: Caribbean: Aruba: Travel and Tourism: Lodging: Timeshares

Would this be considered "Multiple Listings" or "Mirror Sites" (sorry don't understand the difference)

Domain Hi-Jack

The http://www.zebra.co.uk/ domain has been taken over. It was originally listed as a Web/Multimedia designer, but now sells barcode printer hardware.

A few pages still exist to fool editors into thinking they're related to the previous owner of the domain, but the site definitely does not belong in any of the categories that it's currently listed in:
https://curlie.org/Computers/Internet/Web_Design_and_Development/Designers/Dynamic_and_Multimedia/Z/
https://curlie.org/Regional/Europe/United_Kingdom/England/Tyne_and_Wear/Newcastle/Business_and_Economy/Internet/

:)I know for a fact that this day spa does not offer banking, financial, consulting etc. advice. Just your usual run of the mill massages, manicures, facials...

Re: Hijacks & Other Content Changes - Report Here ONLY

I think some of those links were removed/fixed a while ago, but the public side hasn't updated to show that. Take a look at Aruba and see if it looks OK to you.

The category description you were looking at was for Aruba: B&amp;E: Financial Services . It appeared to be for the whole of B&amp;E because the description for B&amp;E was missing. I have fixed that now.

Re: Hijacks & Other Content Changes - Report Here

Somebody nuked that one several weeks ago, you'll see the result when the public pages update.

Don't let that discourage you though, keep 'em coming. I know we haven't got them all, and more eyeballs find more of them.

https://curlie.org/Recreation/Travel/Lodging/Vacation_Rentals/

http://www.travelguides.com - not just accommodation specific, surely this belongs in the travel guide category

http://www.world-traveler.com/
Dead link

https://curlie.org/Regional/Europe/Portugal/Travel_and_Tourism/Lodging/

http://www.a1vacations.com/Portugal.htm has a listing in the vacation rentals directory.

I have noticed alot of websites which have submitted a specific country page to the individual region, i.e.

www.ownersdirect.co.uk has a listing in five regions.

Is this legal within TOS of DMOZ?
