Default Scam msg abt this site, why?

Hello! Does anybody know why am I getting a message that this page could be a scam on some pages? The strange thing is that I go to the page and come back, then the message is gone.

(oh, i did "white out" the sections that showed personal info.)

Thank you!!

No idea, it appears that Earthlink has something against us?

Sometimes those "protective" applications get overzealous, kind of like trying to swat a fly on someone's forehead with an ax LOL. It could be for any of several reasons. Quite often those anti-whatever apps will balk at sites that use Java or ActiveX scripts, macros, or cookies. Also, I have had numerous occurrences over the years where my e-mails weren't coming through not because they were being redirected into a spam or bulk folder, but because an entire host ISP was being blocked by the opposite side, like AOL blocking everything from Yahoo because they were bombarded with massive spam or otherwise inappropriate content by someone who happened to have a Yahoo account, and so rather than just ban that IP address or e-mail, they just banned all of Yahoo. Talk about overkill!

You might have the option of allowing trusted sites and apps to get through the Earthlink filter. If not, you might want to ask the Earthlink folks exactly what the objectionable content is and ask them to help you with a workaround.

I used Justin smiley's on my website (yes i asked) and one of my member's said that it was stolen and to report it to stolen@webkinzinsider.com

My member didn't tell me that they read it when she was posting on my site.

thanks! i can still get to the site, the scam msg is annoying . earthlink has blocked yahoo, too. i always guessed it was bc yahoo was considered spam thanks to some hacker or something. last time it happened was a couple of years ago.

justin said that he didnt know so as long as he didnt think it was a worry, then i wont worry abt it. dont feel like calling earthlink.

It's probably just the protectiveness of your computer.

That's awkward. My virus protection does not say WI is unsafe? Hmm.. Well, just let us know if it goes away..
