I believe that the forums have been compromised from looking at Impulses thread and when my web security gave me the following message;

Note the lack of actually providing a 'continue link' on the actual web address for Tau Online struck me as VERY odd, hence I am VERY suspect that this is actually a Google program, I believe it is been built to look like this, but I am uncertain still.

This is a very serious problem, in my opinion, because it's the first time I've seen an 'error' report like this. Hence I am rather suspect of it validity.

Hmm, I've also seen TO on a webpage listed as a military forum.

It could be hacked, its been done before,

It still does, if you hit "I'm feeling lucky".

And the first link on the page leads you to the "did you mean?" page.

Hmm, very strange.

My AVG Link Scanner says the TO link and website is a O.K. So, no problems with the website. :P

Maybe something is up with Google? And as Mr X said, it could've been hacked, but there are many other possibilities as to why.

EDIT: Ah found out why, read here. It's on the BBC News Website.

Not the same thing. The example you mention is actually a well-known imitation of an actual Google page which requires you to press the 'Do you feel lucky?' button to work, as at least at the time it was the top result listed.

Yeah, Google basically did that for everything for an hour or so last night. 4chan went crazy because of it.
