Interference with Web Search

I typed in a search for craigslist that had a Seattle address and it was through Bing search, which I didn't choose but just went with it for that time. I clicked on it and instead of getting the Seattle craigslist, which is official and what the link says, it gave me the town of: "Goa".

Which has nothing to do with Washington state or Seattle or the link I clicked on. I was redirected maliciously to "Goa" in Eastern India.

This is the kind of thing that happened all the time, in addition to torture, beginning in 2006-2007 with my son.

I am cut and pasting what I clicked on, to show I am not imagining I chose a link that should have gone to Seattle:

craigslist: seattle-tacoma classifieds for jobs, apartments ... · Official site
craigslist provides local classifieds and forums for jobs, housing, for sale, personals, services, local community, and events

New York State
North Carolina
Los Angeles

I put the link that was online, which I clicked on, in italics to show exactly how it came up.

After I posted this, it went to the correct location but it went to "Goa" twice when I directly clicked on Seattle. And then after I blogged about it, it was removed and then when I went back to the page, a new link was there, and with a different color as if I'd clicked on that one already, and it was my mistake. It wasn't my mistake.
