Gmail was smart enough to put those addressed directly to me
into the spam folder -- and let those via nanog through.  It's
been trained well!

Let's look at this as an opportunity.  We have a relatively
small set of websites that have been corrupted with additional
links (presumably unknown to the owner), that then redirect
one or more times.

What's the exploit that corrupted the sites?

Have the site owners been contacted?

All the sites that I checked (without the added suffix) seem
legit.  But maybe they are spammer sites?  How do we know?
