this forum thinks my Mac is an Amazon Kindle Fire?

If this message is flagged as having been posted from an Amazon Kindle Fire, there is a bug lurking somewhere because I am on a Mac G4.  Have any other Mac users experienced this phenomenon?  My previous two postings to the at&t forums were flagged that way and I'm guessing this one will be as well, but I won't be sure until it is actually posted.

Hello bruce11111,

 

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.  I will relay your message to the tech team.

 

May I ask how you connect your Mac G4 to the internet?

 

Thanks!

What browser are you using and the fact that a G4 is a PPC may have confused the program?

Here is my setup:  Mac G4 running OS X 10.4.11, Safari 4.1.3, wired ethernet connection to Airport Extreme which is connected to AT&T U-verse gateway modem ("i38HG").

I seem to recall this happening on Wireless, but a Mod manually made the change.  I know it was happening over there when new phones came out, but to someone with a Mac as well.
