Every time I tried to click on it, it would show that.

Rob, I don't think it's funny. Like the others I had the same message when clicking on the Jail thread.

You're a brave soul, Fife. To mask your horror with such a toothy grin.

Joe, nobody said that the issue itself is funny. But around here we're bound to find some kind of humor in almost any thread. (Life is the same way - sometimes you just have to find *something* to laugh about or we'll end up bitter cranks.
) And Fife would give his own mother a spelling ticket. Circumstances be hanged! The law must be upheld!

As for the malware alert, that's why the board wouldn't let that smiley be posted - it detected the malware and eliminated the smiley before it could cause any harm (other than Rob getting panned)...BUT some of the malware detecting programs in our computers would still read it as being there because the link had originally been in the post. The board's filter already took care of the problem, so there's nothing to worry about.

Also, if any of you are interested in it, Adblock is an add-on that will block a great deal of malicious sites as well as a lot of annoying ads. It's available for Firefox and Chrome, as far as I know.

For a minute, I thought I was in trouble. Cause, I didn't post any other sites in the jail thread. Glad, it's taking care of.

Thanks for explaining. I was wondering what on earth could be on this forum as malware. scratchead

Surreee. As my grandma used to say, "It's getting deep in here, let me pull up my pants."
Miss Lisa, thank you. I do feel better now.

I find it highly amusing that it's the Jail thread that had the Malware problem...
