What JohnnyD44 said. Good job!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I too am still experiencing this problem. On my computer I run Norton so I tried my girlfriends and she's running Avast and still the same problem...

I use Avast, and I received another warning when I came here, actually to see if the threat problem had been removed.

Hi guys,

Please try again. Whatever it was should be gone now.

Thats really odd. I only use Norton and this site has always come up as secure. I do have ad-block with firefox, so I wouldn't be surprised if my browser was automatically removing the ads already, which means Norton doesn't have anything to complain about.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

The auto refresh every 8-9 seconds that Kaisa mentioned is occurring with me, at least I believe it is the same thing. I had this last week and it ended when the other issue was resolved. But it returned Saturday and has continued.

What it is: every 8-9 seconds you hear "click-click" and the bar across the bottom refreshes as if the page is loading, only for a split second. If you click the back button, it won't go anywhere, and if you click the drop-down arrow for the back button you see a list of pages (one for each refresh) "http 404 not found".

My reason for posting this here is to ask if anyone else is getting this now?

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
