Toucharcade Redirect Issue.

Can't access the site via my "Top Sites" in Safari or via manually typing the URL in the address bar. I keep getting redirected to an apps site. I mean yeah its good advertising for them, but I cannot access the home page. I have to manually type in http://toucharcade.com/forums to get here.

Exactly, I was just about to post this. It links to http://global.helppurple.com/en/, looks like either this is a mistake on TA's (adversiting?) part, or they've hijacked TA's domain in an attempt to garner attention for their app. Stupid move.

EDIT: Looks like the problem's being fixed as we speak, the page has changed to one saying 'Be right back...'

EDIT: Aaaaand now it's fixed.
