Since the weekend, I've been getting this from Avast when I click on some posts:

That sounds a lot like what FM gets after searching nudes of Bob.

...few days. Very annoying. Our $50 bucks yearly isn't enough, so they want $80 to avoid the ads (which is triggering this anti-virus warning). Also the incessant popups to turn off my ad blocker every time I login. Not gonna happen. In fact, it's simply pissing me off.

Some commenters use italics to indicate sarcasm, while others prefer the traditional ending of /s. Others eschew any indication of sarcasm as a dilution of wit. Before down voting somebody, ask yourself, "Could this be sarcasm?"

I have tried it with and without my adblocker. Still getting the warning either way.

I'm not complaining about the site--I appreciate Tigernet and everyone associated with it. Just wanted them to know what is happening in hopes that they could do something about the problem. Also, wanted to know if it was just me having the problem.

As for the ad block popup, if you white list us, it will go away :)

Ah, so the $79.99 guys are having the same problem?

That shouldn't be happening. I thought maybe it was my "premium" level causing it. Crump and B-Meist may wanna look into this.

I used to use avast but it does give a lot of false alarms, not sure if this is one or not but could be.

For the most part, it happens after I click on a post and try to give a TU or even scroll down replies to a post. I can get a screenshot with details if you need it.

It doesn't happen every page load, but sometimes it will happen 10-12 times while scrolling down a post with multiple replies.

I've blocked ###### tags on signatures so that should never happen again. Sorry for the issue!
