I think it's a bit deeper than that.  I think some sites are vulnerable 
to malicious redirects-- sort of like using an open email relay, but 
with http requests instead of email.  And there's a bunch of bots whose 
mission in life is to seek out and exploit such sites.  At least, that's 
my suspicion.

But I really don't know.  That's why I'd love some further speculation 
from other Seasiders.
