It looks like we got a clean bill of health from Google. So there shouldn't be any more warnings. Thanks for your patience.

Yeah, the spammers are a tenacious bunch. Our forum uses vBulletin, which is a popular forum software. The one unfortunate thing about popular software, it that it often becomes a target for spammers.

But for the most part the spammers are harmless, at least as far as viruses go. There really isn't any way for them to post something on this site that would be harmful. They are annoying for sure. And yes, the mods do a great job of clearing their posts. We're grateful for their diligence!

I'm hoping to redo the forum of KH and make the forum less of a spam target. It was supposed to be my summer project, but at the moment I am laden with other KH code projects. I'm still hoping I can fit it in.

I got the message yesterday on my mac computer (using Safari) that the site contained malware. I had the option to override the warning, but decided that likely wasn't my best choice, lol. I was wishing I had an email address I could send the info to, but the only way I could've contacted anybody would've been to do that override...

So relieved this morning to find everything ok! This is MY site and I love it, but guess I'm not here enough to see the spammers you're talking about - are they obvious, or do they just ask dumb questions like I do? lol Thanks again GG and Claire for the hat help the other day
