A minute ago, I was looking something up from the Narbonic director's commentary, and found that Google had the website listed as potentially harmful. I looked at the website on a safer OS , but I couldn't find anything about the problem anywhere. I figure it's probably a mistake, but I'm paranoid enough about these things that I can't just ignore it. Does anyone know why the site got listed as dangerous?

No, but I've emailed Joey Manley [the owner of WebComicsNation] to let him know.

Yeah, we're well aware of it. I don't know what's going on.

Has anybody been putting up comics about controversial subjects? UFOs, government cover-ups, evolution, realistic birth control, perpetual motion machines, the recent rising of Ryleh?

You know, stuff THEY don't want us to know that THEY don't want us to know about?

Ummm... you realize that this is a webcomics site we're talking about? There's bound to be something like that up there.

P.S: Perpetual motion machines don't exist. If you want to prove otherwise, you build one.

And Ryleh does? :D

And if I built a perpetual motion machine, THEY would come down on me like a ton of bricks. No thank you!

Well, this is in no small way distressing.

At least it's off the malicious list now - it was back to normal last night, and it's been taken off the suspect-sites database. The present trouble looks like a domain-registration snafu.

The warning notices I was getting yesterday in Firefox linked to this diagnostic message:
Quote:
What happened when Google visited this site?

Of the 11 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 0 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 07/15/2008, and suspicious content was never found on this site within the past 90 days.

Has this site acted as an intermediary resulting in further distribution of malware?

Over the past 90 days, www.webcomicsnation.com/ did not appear to function as an intermediary for the infection of any sites.

Has this site hosted malware?

No, this site has not hosted malicious software over the past 90 days.


:roll: Maybe it was zen malware. The sound of one hand hacking?

The contact info for the webcomicsnation.com registration has the old subscriptions@moderntales.com address, which I seem to recall Joey giving up on years ago because of the spam volume.

Do you think I had the 1st idea what a squidhole was when I invented it? Certainly not! I was just messing about! That's when the very best & very Maddest Science gets done. I thought,Why, this alabaster octopus looks like it wants a nice transmission inside it,& fairly soon I had a thing that obviously had a Use, though what that Use could be was a total mystery.
(Sameness Engine) I haven't the 1st notion of what it's for! That's not why I made it-I made it for the sheer joy of making something new! It's getting up to tell me what it wants me to do, though, I can just feel it. It's been giggling a lot at night.
