Checking the moderated comments on this blog I came across a link that used the BBC’s website to link to unsavory sites. In the example below I’m using one of my sites
and it astounds me that the BBC leave this door wide open. Surely they could have some sort of filter to ensure that the site being linked to is “approved”. I appreciate that it would take alot of effort to construct and maintain such a list but I believe a great many people will be fooled by the apparant endorsement by the BBC.
There used to be a similar redirect issue in osCommerce but this was closed pretty promptly. I agree that it’s pretty bad from the Beeb to leave that one open.
