No just cut in with a big red square with the warning on it.

Just said this site was suspected of being a phishing site. What is strange is that I have never seen it before.

I thought Bernhard had cleaned it up.

He has, but it takes time for the various site that monitor the web to catch up. Opera browser, via AVG, kept telling me the site was unsafe, but there was also a link to report false flags (which it now is) which I used. It shouldn't matter how many people make that report, one will do to get this site re-evaluated.

Yeah, AVG threw up a warning yesterday. I copied the text and was going to post about it, but completely forgot.

It was something about a site that ended in .info using this site to spread malware or something. It only happened when I did a search of a thread for something I was looking for. Regular browsing of the site gave/give no warnings.

It's possible that we got on a list as a possible vector for ID theft or something. Phishing is easy to combat - just send me your bank details, PIN, and password and I'll tell you how to avoid it. :D

Yeah, my email spam filter 'MailFoundry' flagged emails about PMs and subscribed threads as a possible problem and quarantined them. MailFoundry has an easy routine for reporting false positives though, so that should be sorted out soon.
