Dunno, is it nothing? I just want to get in the thread and it's being blocked :blink:

It's probably one of the ads - sounds like it is being quashed.

(Best be in Firefox with noscript - ads never see my screen, never mind infect it.)

I don't see any ads.....If I did I would ignore them at best...or most probably see I never buy what I see in them. ;)

http://www.ghostery.com/ blocks adverts on firefox so I dont have to wait for server farms to deliver their adverts when I'm surfing and also like you have experienced protects me from malware put through server farms.

Is there a decent popup blocker / privacy setter for Chrome?

Please explain to an IT numpty - does this mean unticking the "enable javascript" box? or what?

Hi cartimandua51. Noscript is another Firefox addon that allows you to decide (and it remembers) which people you trust to allow javascript to run when you visit a webpage. (But the adblock addon suggested above will serve just as well to stop the adverts.)

I use both. One of the reasons I'm kind of wedded to Firefox.

Not wanting to point fingers but I got a pop-up on my iMac/Safari telling me that I was the lucky winner xxx

It is a new computer and I have only had time to load up one page **HPC** my last laptop got malware from this site putting it over the edge (and into the bin).

I keep coming back for more hits though, must be a sign of addiction :D

I've been asked to remove that thread by the admin/developer - so I've done that.

That's a bit of a shame as I'd bookmarked that one and only saved a few emails from that thread :(

The message people were getting about themarkethotel began when I embedded a link to a picture on their site demonstrating what a part of Alton looked like (a picture of said hotel)

I'm guessing that site has had some sort of attack in the past which put it on a blacklist, hence the warnings whenever anyone hit that particular page of the thread.

I then edited the post and removed that image, so the warnings should have gone then (although, there never was any actual risk to anyone)

Any chance of a reconsideration as there was lots of useful stuff in there...
