    Hi,

    This morning I have received multiple "threat detected"  "malicious site" messages from my AVG anti-virus software while attempting to look at posts on this site. Not sure what's going on. Have never had this issue before. Sorry, I don't know how to take a screen shot to show you the exact messages, but it happens every time I click on a post.

    Sometimes when a certain advertiser is shown this will fire. When you see this alert can you post what ads you are seeing so we can let the ad team know? Thanks Terry.

    Thanks, Nicko.

    I Absolutely will let you know when it happens.

    It just popped up again. The ad on the page was for US Cellular.

    I think the problem is with my virus detection software. I just had it happen on Salon.com as well. I ran an update but it hasn't seemed to help.
