Phishing Website?

As many of you know, Microsoft has made an upgrade of Internet Explorer (to I.E. 7) a critical update for security reasons. Well, here's an interesting aspect of the new security software: today, when I clicked to respond to one of the posts on this very bulletin board, I was greeted with this lovely message:

Internet Explorer Phishing Filter False Positive

False positives are the bane of the security industry. That sort of thing is going to tick a lot of people off, I'm sure. Some might argue that it's not a false positive, but just a warning that it may be a positive. Well, if you took your kid to the movies and someone told you that there "may be" rat excrement in the popcorn, would you buy it for your kid? It is a false positive, simply by virtue of having any kind of a flag raised at all.

I wonder what about that page made the warning appear. I haven't been able to find any other pages that cause that message to show up.

My 22 year old daughter, a Junior at University of Florida and is an avid Veiled Chamelon lover. She has had great success in the rescue of two here in Central Florida. She is serious about breeding and is seeking a female at fair price.
Any advice is appreciated for this holiday season.

Comment Spammers: Amazing...there's not any comment nor trackback spam anywhere on this weblog. And yet this weblog receives thousands of spam attempts every week. You'd think that these guys would instead devote their resources to sites where they have a chance.
