I'm not seeing that on my machine. Can you try clearing your cookie for this site (if you don't want to clear all your cookies)? Also it could be a DNS issue in your cache. You could try a flushdns if the cookie trick doesn't work.

Can you provide an example?

It could be that the site you're talking about doesn't link directly to DVD Talk; they may be bouncing through a tracking URL, and that could be gumming up the works.
