To: bug-CGI-Session@rt.cpan.org
From: Kartik Mistry <kartik@farematrix.com>
Hi, While reading article, I came across SPAM/Adult contents in link given at, http://search.cpan.org/dist/CGI-Session/lib/CGI/Session/Tutorial.pm#ACCESSING_STORED_DATA Link which leads to that site is: http://handalak.com/cgi-bin/subscriptions.cgi Please fix it. I felt it very bad when I clicked on that link. (However, it says that it will lead to Adult content, but still hardly any people read that kind of noticed and later felt bad :P) Thanks! -- Kartik Mistry Farematrix Inc.

I was not aware of this and am also sorry it is there. I doubt this the content that was there was then the link was originally put into place. Sometimes domains get "porn-jacked"... after the owner lets the domain expire, someone else buys it up to redirect the links that used to go there to adult content. I'm uploading a new release now.
