We posted about and commented on last month’s debacle with Rap Genius getting (well deserved if you ask me) a G-sized smackdown on the traffic front, this week it’s Expedia taking the hit.

Why, is the better question? This is the sort of thing that’s gone on forever. Maybe they’re gearing up to take a swipe at Microsoft over paying for XBox one reviews (even though the update says that MS is throwing their agency under the bus on this one).
