I went to edit my post about UFC 83 and my Symantec phishing filter blocked the page. I thought it was odd is all, so I thought I'd throw that out there.

Did it provide any sort of message? I can't see why this would have set of a phishing alert.

It just looked like boilerplate "we're not sure but this site might be phishing, click here if you want to risk it and click here if you don't know what phishing is".

When I get home I'll see if I can get it to happen again and pull in a screengrab for you.

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.
