    I got a malware loaded for BYC and Sufficient self but the message was not for this site. I fear the site that caused it may be one of your advertisers.....

    Any ideas?? It is obviously loading, but it does seem to be operating very slowly.

    I got a malware warning earlier too, but my virus dector deleted it, and now everything seems normal.

    Yes, it's a hack attached to a banner, but I think it must be being addressed, as I haven't had it in a while...
