Misdirection from the site name

Postby portia » Sun Jan 19, 2014 2:44 pm

I have been having some trouble with my computer, lately, but I do not think this is the cause.
I have typed in "www.theonering.com" and, repeatedly, gotten a jewelry selling site. It even happened when I clicked on a previous site in my history list.
The only way I could get to you was to get a list of search results, and pick out something else from the list, other than "www.theonering.com" Do you have ny ideas on why this is happening to me? Is someone poaching on your site?

Same here. Sorry, portia. :cry2:

Life is short; break the rules, forgive quickly; kiss slowly; love truly; laugh uncontrollably; and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

I tried as well, and got here.

Portia, I hope that your computer hasn't caught some malware that directs you to those sites instead of this place.

it maybe because of the browser perhaps?
Have you tried getting here from a different browser?

Over the past couple of Days I have noticed a reduction in the number of jewelry results in my search. This time there were none. The site seemed to be run by Amazon.
