Just wondering why that would show up...

Were you recently browsing ABC's website in the same tab?

Possible reasons might be an ie bug, they use the same image name we do for that little bugger, or it just never refreshed for whatever reason. I've never run into that, but I've never gone to ABC for... well, anything, and use Firefox.

No, I didn't go to ABC,
It's back to the normal ATS symbol now.

Another thing I just noticed thats weird, is that it shows up
in "my Favorites as ABC to... I would show a picture of that
but i have to use the snippit tool and i cant get to it when i have my favorites open.

Hmm.. I have never noticed that with ABC, then again, I haven't gone to ABC's website since we smoked them in ratings on quantcast.

This did happen to me once with World of Warcraft's logo showing up, I believe it is simply a browser error, as it only happened during that one session and after clearing my cache, it all went away.

Hope that helps.

That icon comes from a little icon file that sits on whatever webserver that's hosting the site. Sometimes - in very rare cases - the browser gets confused and shows the wrong icon. However, if this happens, it will almost certainly correct itself the next time you pull up a page.

What a coincidence for ABC's logo to pop up next to the ATS address... I wish I could speculate more.

Did anyone else happen to see this?

EDIT: still resolves to the same IP address in their Dallas datacenter... so the site hasn't been absorbed by ABC or anything yet. Starting to look like your browser just bugged up...
