That site got blocked for me (and not using Chrome, either, plain ol' Firefox) (although Google did the blocking), so I'm going to guess that the site changed hands or was somehow scooped up by a malware propagator. I'll assume it's nothing more than that and the usual degree of caution would be enough.

Well, the website in question is mentioned in exactly five posts on this site - and two of THOSE are in this thread. The other three are from 2002-2005. I'll edit out the references, just to be safe but I don't think there's anything to worry about here because it's nothing LINKED...just LINKS. (I have no idea why it came up for the particular thread you cited, but then, Google DOES hate me lately.)

Not trying to smart off, but what's wrong with them if the responders give thoughts on the list instead of just adding more of them?
