And, if you go to their site you can see who rockstar1 is! *insert trumpets*
http://www.registry.vv.cc/whois.php

Rockstar1 is from Moscow.
Or, more accurately, from "Moskow, United States."  The e-mail address and the fact that the account was created yesterday does not fill me with confidence in their legitimacy.

Everybody got that.  I suspect Randall was trying to fix something and the gerbil running the power thought he could take a nap.

Same thing for me too.

That should be corrected now. There was a glitch going on, and we had to reapprove everyone.

Phew. I thought for a moment that TC didn't want me, to get back at my browser for not wanting it!

That was me, unfortunately. I decided to try rechecking that last 20 people to register with Stop Forum Spam. The mod did not like that and marked everyone (including me) as awaiting approval. We had to manually approve everyone again. Sad

That said, I've found some suspicious stuff in profiles. Several people have been deleted although they have never posted so it is unlikely they are the problem. Bots are told to stay out of the profile pages.  

I've also finally got some info from Google that may help.

Yeah, chrome was "warning" me too, so I told hubby.... And he said not to worry about it and proceed anyway...After waiting ALL DAY!  I missed you TC!  I may not post that much but I love to browse!

Same. I have Chrome and have done no recent updates, and I got the message as well. :S So it's not just a FF issue.

YAY! Randall, you rock. I don't say that nearly often enough. And that wife of yours--what's her name again? She rocks, too. :-)

About that.... I'm pretty sure my email to Randall went through, but I got a delivery fail notice for the one to the staff list.  It's been in my address book for ages - maybe I missed a change at some point?

I've also finally got some info from Google that may help.

It was a list of a few of the pages they see malware on. Oddly, I habve looked at those pages along with the rest of the site and wasn't seeing it. I had them show me one as Googlebot sees it and there was the rockstar1 crap. We display an affiliate ad on all the pages they listed. This ad was served via javascript from their site. The rockstar bit was mixed at the end of their ad. It looks like they were hacked -- I've emailed them and am displaying the ad without their javascript on the pages it was on.

I'll check a few more things, but if I don't see anything else I'll ask googler to recheck the site before I shut down for the night. Then we will see who right, those who say it takes google 24 to 48 hours to recheck sites versus those who say several weeks.

This.  In spades.  With a cherry on top.  And a virtual truffle for Lyric.

Testing now....

... And, mine went through, posted to the list, and has been sent back out (so everyone on staff will have one in their mailboxes... sorry 'bout that, people).

I'll PM you the addy, Marilyn, so you can correct if you've got it wrong - though I suspect it was probably just a Yahell glitch.
