yep. Me too.

Huh. When *I* go to page five of that thread, I don't get the Malware warning, but I do get a prompt for a user ID and password for the site www.speedacm.org.

Teapot's sig was doing that. I killed it in the post in question, but he still has it in his profile. Since he's still active, I'm hesitant to delete it entirely from his profile, but it might be worth doing.

As for the other malware warning, I don't see anything that would cause that. Any chance anyone could provide more specifics?

EDIT: And now that I look at it, it appears that dMp's sig uses that server, but he hasn't posted in that thread on the page in question. Curiouser and curiouser...

Yeah, he did actually. http://the-w.com/p/476045 . If that's not on page 5 for you, that might be because you have a non-standard number of posts per page.

Here's google's info page about it: http://safebrowsing.clients.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.freeimagehosting.net%2Fuploads%2F7e243104d1.jpg&client=googlechrome&hl=en-US

I've used adblock to block his image, just so I can keep that warning message to stop showing up.

I've
- moved dMp image to a safer server and moved the link over in a few places to stop the malware warning.
- killed Teapot's signature image in his profile, since it looks like the hosting he was using is just gone.

I'm at 20 posts per page, which I figured was the default. That, or I was distracted with work. We'll just go with the latter.

Thanks guys, I've been slacking.

I may have to do some back-end find and replace on Teapot's older posts if we need to clean that up.

And I've erased The Thrill's avatar because people were telling me that it was doing this even before I left.
