Threat Level: Sedona Red

For those unable to read the fine, poorly centered print:

This website has been reported as unsafe

We recommend that you do not continue to this website.

(Well, heck. Join the club, Microsoft.)

This website has been reported to Microsoft for containing threats to your computer that might reveal personal or financial information.

(What? Nothing about threats to independent speech, the online community or the integrity of people, process and ideas?)

Pulling down the More Information menu reveals this charmer: 

Malicious software threat: This site contains links to viruses or other software programs that can reveal personal information stored or typed on your computer to malicious persons.

(Malicious persons? Hey, c'mon. That's not just Diamondhacks talking anymore!)

(Ed. Here's another screen print, five hours later, after we tried to access a different snakepit article. Timestamps in lower right hand corner)
