    Yesterday evening i was downloading MIDI SEQUENCER demos from SONIC SPOT .COM website . I had started from the bottom of the list ,working my way upwards and clicked on a MIDI SEQUENCER demo download link called JUMP . This resulted in a connection to a website containing PORNOGRAPHY and other adult links . I immediatly closed the browser down and told my wife . She suggested i report it to MICROSOFT via REPORT unsafe website which i did . HOwever this link does not allow you to describe the complaint so here i am . Having closed the browser i realised i did not have the website address to report so i returned to the SONIC SPOT website , clicked on the MIDI SEQUENCER ” JUMP ” download link and returned to the PORNOGRAPHIC website . I noted the website” HARDNOTE . com ” and closed the Browser . At this point my wife appeared so i asked her to SEE FOR HERSELF . I returned to the SONIC SPOT wesite and on scrolling through the download list found that the ENTRY for ” JUMP ” had DISSAPPEARED . I closed the browser and reopened it a further three times in an attempt to relocate ” JUMP ” but to no avail . What really bothers me is WHY i was able to access the site twice and then the LISTING disappeared from the initial website . I have the distinct feeling the WEBSITE LINK recognised my return and went into hiding .
