Hello,

The Athens Olympics organizers have created a policy [1]
for linking to the Website that is inconsistent with both 
the "When to use Get" finding [2] and to some extent
the Deep Linking finding [2]. In particular, 
the policy states:

 "For your protection and ours we have established a procedure for 
  parties wishing to introduce a link to the ATHENS 2004 website on 
  their site. By introducing a link to the ATHENS 2004 official 
  Website on your site you are agreeing to comply with the ATHENS  
  2004 Website General Terms and Conditions."

(They can be contacted at terms@athens2004.gr)

 _ Ian

P.S. Thanks to Karl Dubost for raising awareness of this.
