Carrot -

This usually happens when a bad ad gets into rotation, but I see you have a premium account - were you logged into your premium account (i.e. no ads) when this happened? Or were you browsing as a guest?

Thanks Carrot - from the info in your PMs I'm guessing that one of the 3rd party images that was embedded into that forum thread was triggering the issue. Since that thread hasn't been updated in over a year and its mostly just funny cat pictures, I'm going to delete it from the forum - and hopefully that'll be the end of it. If you still see this warning anywhere on the site please email me with the url and I'll continue to work on it.

Thanks for the alert!
