Phony "MalWare" Warning

I've been advised by a reader that she received a warning like the above graphic when attempting to access this blog. We've seen this before, in 2009 and 2010. For information purposes, I'm on a Macintosh, which is not vulnerable to the myriad of virii, Trojan horses, and assorted annoyances that afflict the PC world. I'm running the latest anti-virus protection, with updated definitions, as a precaution anyway. I also remove daily any Flash SOL super cookies that may find their way onto the hard drive. Additonally, there are no ads, banners, popups or other annoying commercial nonsense on this blog. In short, there is NO threat here to your computer. What's apparently happening is that something posted here irritated certain powers-that-be enough for them to play this silliness. Michael Rivero said, "Truth is only 'hate speak' to those with something to hide." I can't stop them from doing this, it's originating out on the internet somewhere. But in an odd way, it's a compliment, something here must have really struck a nerve. Good. They might as well get used to it, too. For them, it's only going to get worse. - CoyotePrime
