Virus warnings

Hey, so I'm getting virus warnings occasionally when I'm on the site. My antivirus says they're coming from google ads. Is this happening for others or is my antivirus being stupid?

Note: I'm also getting them on the Bulldogs forum.

That's not good. If it happens again can you take a screenshot and if you can, right-click not he ad and copy the URL address, then PM/email it to me.

As far as the Bulldog site goes - if you down with dogs you come up with fleas.

I think that happens when you visit inappropriate websites

I just got it too.

I first got it at another site the other day, and I noted that the "Grand Tour" ad was being displayed on that site.

Then just then when I got the warning, the "Grand Tour" ad was being displayed.


If it happens to anyone else, can you please check which ads are displayed, and if its that I'll report it to Google

In reality I always use an ad-blocker. They make the Internet a lot better.

It blocks the ad when it happens to me so I don't know which ad was showing.

Careful coz you may end up with a Thai ladyboy or a Stalin's killer great granddaughter - think I would prefer the ladyboy.

The Warren went down for the count in the midst of allegations that the pro-SSM mod was deleting opposing opinions. At least a month ago now - without any Wobbie.

Haven't got any virus warnings for a couple of days so, whatever you might have done seems to have worked.
