Hummm...we have a great forum with all kinds of nice, helpful people and the site is maintained at zero cost to us (totally free!) and you're unhappy that the problem wasn't addressed within 24 hours, never mind that it's not a true problem, only a site glitch??

I know that the site Administrators have demanding full time careers (how else could they afford to do all of this for us for free?) and I know that as soon as they are able they will get in here and rectify the problem for us. Hang tight, help is coming.

just happened to me again. this time different than the last... Nothing else open on my computer and it went off as soon as it loaded this site. the java opened by itself when I opened the site.. i didn;t click on anything.

edit: just recently this site has been refreshing every 10 seconds whenever im on. not sure if that means anything but it never use too

Hi guys,

Thanks for alerting us to this issue. We've taken great care to ensure that the code that comprises this site is safe and secure. It appears that one of the ad networks we work with to help support the costs of maintaining the site needs to take a closer look at what they've been serving. Evidently we're only one of many websites affected by their recent issue.

We've disabled ads until they can look into it and assure us that their ads will not present any issues for our members.

Thanks again and we apologize for any inconvenience. Rest assured that we won't work with any ad networks who don't value our members as much as we do.

Sincerely,
Mike

Thank you admin!! I was confused when I saw this happening to me...

Thank you for your prompt attention to our matter and working to resolve it. I don't think enough people nearly appreciate that this site is free and maintained at no cost to us. Thanks for all you do here at TFK, this forum is great and my wife thanks you for my addiction, You help and dedication doesn't go unnoticed!
