OT: RDS' website
 
Just wondering if this happens to other people as well... it seems that when I click an article link on that it redirects me to a "Page cannot be found..." with the address being "http://ad.doubleclick.net/......." If I then click back on my browser, I get to the article. It only does it once per computer session because it leaves a cookie on my computer. If I clear my cookies, it does it again.

I find this a little weird... isn't doubleclick one of those "click-me-to-generate-money" sites?

run spybot or adaware...I think it's a spyware cookie

I ran ad-aware just the other day... I'm thinking RDS is purposely doing this to generate fake ad clicks. I blocked all cookies from RDS.ca; this has fixed the problem, but still, it's pretty ridiculous that I have to do that.

I agree. For an allegedly 'big name' site, that's a pretty hokey set-up.

If this is the right site .rds.ca/ it works fine for me.

Does your computer allow all cookies? And did you try clicking on one of the articles on rds.ca?

Just clicked on some links (wish I could read French, stopped after gr. 6) works perfect. I'm using explorer and on Tools-Internet Options-Privacy my cookies are set to medium.

Just did a quick search and doubleclick is a spyware cookie that sends personal info about yourself to advertisers. Sometimes adaware misses some that spybot picks up, I use both from time to time..w#w.safer-networking.org/ its a free download
