Almost every link in emails I receive from PC Magazine news feeds go
through a site blocked by the MVPS hosts file.  Specifically, the site
blocked is:

link dot p0 dot com

I cannot locate any information regarding the WHY this p0 dot com is
included in the hosts file.

I know I can simply comment it out and accept any risk, but what is the
risk if anyone can provide such expanded information.
