Hey Poopoo :)

Have you tried contact your ISP to hear if they are filtering DNS requests?
It sure sounds like it. Verizon web search are sort of "hi-jacking" your DNS

You can have a read about it here: http://gigaom.com/20...search-service/

Now, all this is at the hands of your ISP and Verizon. What you and we can do about it, is to change your
DNS, by using something called OpenDNS. You don't have to download / install anything.
All that is required, is that you change some number's.

Follow this guide on how to configure OpenDNS.

OpenDNS guide

When done, see if you still get re-directed.

Regards Abydos
