There are some strange things happing with the internet! With a major player down and the blocking going on in the middle east it could be reeking havoc with the system! Earthlink is having major problems with an up grade and the majority of the Muslim countries and China are dinking with things! My banners are just fine unless Divers supply is porn?

If any of you see anything out of the normal, can you make a screen capture of it for us?

Some administrators and moderators of several other dive discussion communities and their minions have been repeatedly and criminally hacking & spamming us and we're just gathering more evidence.

Does having your post change mysteriously fall into that category? Some spell checked posts posted in the last week have shown up a few days later as something else.... or maybe I drank too much and hit the wrong button? :confused:

I think you're right, I think it might be my local problem. I am on a different machine right now and everything looks fine. I think I have some malware/adware on my laptop. But I am surprised that it is able to take over the ad banners on the forums and redirect to it's on spam ads. Wow, those pathetic little geeks in their basements are getting creative. If I notice it again when I am on the laptop I will grab a screen shot for you.
