    Just got a message from Norton that I should not visit PF because it is an unsafe site.

    Did not get this message at any time up to 1/2 hour ago so I assume Norton has done an auto-update that has bad info on PF.

    Probably tagged one of the inserted ads.

    Yeah, that could be it. I'm not getting it now.

    Keep me updated on this. I had to clean up a few hundred posts last month because Google showed malware warning on posts that used smilie images from planetsmiley

    Greg, I haven't seen it since that one time, so I'm assuming that it WAS because of a particular ad. I'll let you know for sure if it happen again.
