Merry Christmas, Quasar,

 

For what it's worth, I received the error/warming when I tried to load the site this evening.

Thank you.

It's like a reoccurring nightmare...

Okay, so this nonsense has been going on for over a month now, allow me to offer my unsolicited advice. 

 

I'll preface this first by saying this is not meant to be an attack on any one person in particular, but it does contain my own opinionated conjecture. 

 

If you were to go over to the state/national topic and in particular the threads for Hillary Clinton and POTUS Donald Trump, you'll notice that certain people like to link their comments to certain strong politically-leaning websites and blogs to try and make their points.These sites are not your standard sources for information and tend to come from the far outer fringes of the internet ether world. Unfortunately, along with the hatefully biased misinformation and bile these sites promote, they also tend to carry around hatefully nasty little viruses and malware. It seems to me your servers have probably been infected with just this sort of virus. A couple of the posts look exactly like the same kind of spambot B.S. a family member of mine would get in her email on the reg and has had similar corruption problems with her computer as a result. The solution would then be to delete the offensive links (I would reco deleting both threads entirely as a necessary 'spiritual' cleanse anyway) and then resetting your servers and passwords. It should clear things up. Again, just IMO.

I appreciate the thought... However this is not the issue. I wish it were that easy to fix.

Thanks

Thank you.

Not sure how your frustrating challenge is going, but I hope you get the issue resolved soon.

Shortly after Nov. 8, someone posted a query as to the whereabouts and well-being of some progressives :frantics: who went MIA after that date. A regular here responded that those folks were OK and posting at another local blog site.

That piqued my curiosity. I searched and found that site much to my dismay. 

I was surprised at the animus and vitriol expressed toward you, this site, and its members by the author of that sophomoric blog site.

Just sayin' :rolleyes:

If that be the case sounds as if someone is extremely mentally disturbed...sad. Hope they have a large supply of diapers and safety pins.

That guy and Q love each other. They just won't admit it and act macho instead.

I could't post anything for a couple days, said I was "locked out" but could log in fine after skipping through the red warning page ??  All good now except still getting the warning page.

Appears this chat has died a slow death. Between the impossiblity of being able to get to it unless coattailing onto an email message...the only way I can...and many people pouting over the election of our new POTUS Mr. Trump, there doesn't seem to be anything else happening in the ENTIRE world that people wish to discuss.
Sad.....it used to be an interesting place to visit.

Probably a bit premature to declare death... however I share your frustration.

If you'd like to discuss some other topics than what you see posted, feel free to post something different!

We do have a new POTUS soon... a pretty controversial guy to boot. I'll bet he continues to dominate discussion for a while...

For me, it seems that the warning is gone?

Anyone else still seeing it?

 Yes and at times some kind of security page where you have to type in two matching words ?

Yes, I am still getting the warning page...twice...before I finally get in, but I haven't had to type in any words. Aggravating!

 

Woo, did you do anything that may have resulted in the warning going away?
