    Keep Getting a WARNING This Site is Dangerous

    Yesterday I was trying to visit the site on my pc and no matter which browser I used, I kept getting a warning that this site was dangerous and that phishing was found.

    I tried using it on my tablet and of course I didn't get the warning there???

    Why does it keep popping up on my system?

    I get that warning too.

    I am a staff member but have no administrative rights to check into the webhost stuff.

    The actual owners of this site are hard to find, and I'm not sure if they are even paying attention.

    Just know that you are not the only one.

    I've been getting the same warning for almost a week. I would think this limits the amount of traffic to the site and very few posts are being made.

    I agree, but unless someone who has authority to contact the webhost does just that, it won't change.

    This started happening to us last week also. We can get past the warning except in Firefox and Chrome. We're totally shut out in those 2 browsers.

    And I agree, I think this is slowing down people visiting the site and they stop and not go any further. This is not the fist time we've had this problem with this site.

    I'm using Firefox, but I get the warning each time I visit, and have to "ignore it".

    It's not. There's a mod thread about it as well. Believe us, we know. As Max said, though, we can't do a thing about it unfortunately.

    I talked to 2 developers this morning, one in Florida and one in Texas. They both said they were getting the same warning and didn't try to access the site. So yes, the warning is definitely keeping people from visiting the site.

    I would agree that it is keeping people from the site. I usually use Chrome and get the warning and usually just don't come on but if I use IE it doesn't give the warning. Hopefully someone will be able to get this resolved.
