    AP IMPACT: Porn company is amassing 1-800 numbers
    I think the word "insidious" might enter the conversation here.
    Yes, insidious - good word for it.
    Much more - lengthy article - at AP link above.

    I can't even come up with words for this. It's one thing for an adult who seeks these types of services. It's another for a teen who needs someone to talk to about their sexuality or the elderly person who just needs help with the warranty on their refrigerator.

    Eeek.. just eeeek.

    Oddly similar, I went to visit a long established "Poole Pottery" link yesterday only to find myself on a Chinese porn site full of pop ups that made one gasp and stretch ones eyes:pullhair::pullhair:
    These porn merchants will stop at nothing

    I remember when domain names went the same way, but 1-800 numbers? Seems a little archaic if you ask me. Maybe they are trying to reach the elderly? Tacky.

    Thanks.

    Reached a few of them when dialing an 800 number that was no longer the number it once was. Very amusing.. :maddening:
