I have "lifeaftertheoilcrash.net" in my sig line, but when you click in the link you get redirected to "lifeaftertheoilcrash.com"

Who owns the problem - Geekfest - vBulletin - or the shadow government?



just one more reason to pull your hair out, Kim

You have a bad link.
I copied your link between the quotes and pasted it into a new window and it worked just fine.
At the bottom of your post if I click the link it takes me to .COM

Notice if you hover your mouse over the link, in the info bar at the bottom of IE7 it shows the link your are going to. (Do this without clicking on anything) The text that you see on the page is in your link is .NET, but the link is programed to the text is .com.
The text at this point is no different than a picture or icon having a link associated with it.
delete your link and type it in manualy and you should get their.

on another note, many places have multiple Domain names that all point to their main page. ie.. gmail.com takes you mail.google.com
