Have seen such url's in lotsa places. Almost all the yahoo sites act as
redirectors. many people link using it to make the link look like it is from
yahoo. Just another trick to hide the actual page's location, since all the
logs on the linked page will contain yahoo as the redirector, spoofing the
actual originating linking page. Used by spammers and warez sites to
hide their location.
