MobileMe gallery hijacked by Bing

I don't know what the heck is going on but every time I try to view the wedding photos my mobile me gallery I get redirected to "bing". I don't know why this is happening but it's really starting to p*** me off.

Anyone else here having a similar problem? Do I have to dig a cookie out of my browsing history??

bryanc, cap10subtext: I wonder if you two don't subscribe to the same ISP?

If so, it's probably down to a momentary failure of DNS servers, causing a redirect to whoever's paying them.

Figured out the weirdness

Okay, so I figured out what happened but I still don't know how bing managed to redirect me in MobileMe's domain. I received an error message from MobileMe with a link on the bottom saying "Return to MobileMe Gallery". When I clicked on that link I ended up at the bing page. Not sure how, but once I got the cookie in there every time I tried typing in gallery.me.com/username I kept getting redirected to bing.

Realized I had my cookies set to "Always Accept" thanks to Rogers crappy website (needed in order to view bills). Maybe that had something to do with it.

Erased all my cookies, now I seem to be able to go back to my gallery no problem. Weird. The only proof I have that this all happened is in this pic. Notice it says Bing after gallery.me.com. It even had the little bing web icon attached.
