Yahoo are not the only large company to have done that recently. Have a look


"...I redirected everything coming from Fuddruckers.com (the HotLinking
criminal)... Wrote a nice little message pointing out how incredibly stupid
their web developer is. And then redirected the main page to a pleasant
little website showing photographs of slaughterhouses. And also opened up
some more popups, for those that don?t have popup blockers."

They actually HotLinked Flash. Joy! I guess you could play some live
hardcore pr0n on their site.
