Annoyed By Redirection Notifications?

You want to be warned when a link redirects you. Avoid accepting the link.

Any post found on the RottenTomatoes community forums is likely to be malicious. For example:

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/vine/showthread.php?t=1343424

The post includes a link to

http://www.redsol.cn/autodesk-inventor-student-download.html

This link redirected to traflab.cn

http://traflab.cn/in.cgi?10&parameter=autodesk+inventor+student+download&HTTP_REFERER=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.rottentomatoes.com%2Fvine%2Fshowthread.php%3Ft%3D1343424&ur=1&key=auth

Notice that the referrer information is passed. What happens next may depend upon the referrer. This link redirected to
