so In school I though yesterday I'd check this website from the school computer.

I typed  .com yes I remembered it wrong but the thing is if you type that address it goes to some porn website and I almost got busted  :shock:

I was like WTF and tried .net and then it finally worked...

the weird thing is that the porn website that it goes isn't called or has anything to do with furry word or teens. So how come it randomly goes there ?

why it just doesn't give blank website y'know that invalid address or something I don't know what's it called in English version of browsers.

And I advice you to not type .com ever,,,ever,,,ever

[ADMIN EDIT:  We don't need to give that site more search-engine ranking than they already have.]

This is been a problem for a very long time, we're well aware of it, and there's nothing we can do about it.  It was registered at about the same time as furryteens.org, and while I recently acquired furryteens.net to help offset some of the search-engine prioritization of the other site, we've exhausted all legal means of acquiring that domain or shutting the site down.  In fact, a change of domain might be in our future, I already own the .com, .net, and .org for a suitable replacement.

And, it "randomly" goes there because someone intentionally purchased the domain and put a porn site on it, there's nothing "random" about it.  If it were a case of the domain not being registered, it would return a DNS error in the browser, but no, someone owns it and they're not giving it up.

The same thing happens with furaffinity. I was at a friend's house using his computer and I tried to go on FA but I accidentally put .com and it brought up something similar.
