Subject: Re: FLASH: back button in browser - oops
From: Charlene Reese
Date: Sat, 12 Feb 2000 02:00:11 GMT

Someone please help.

These are the sort of messages I keep getting as a result of this.

"I got to this site by doing a search for processor upgrades. when I try
to exit the site
with my back button I remain on their home page. Is their webpage broke?
or are they locking me in like some sleasy porno page? At any rate, I
will not do business with a firm that does things like this."
