I think I figured out what it is/was, the spambot infestation the site had a bit back had some harmful links and the most recent warnings are that the it doesn't currently hold any malware but did within the past 90 days, most likely due to the bots, basically its nothing but a warning that the site did have an issue with spam bots lol

We're trying to bring in ad revenue by planting malware on everybody's computer. Hope you don't mind.




(Yes, I'm kidding.)

from what we can tell there is no malware but someone did try to install it.
the site may be down for a little while while we clean it up .

WHEW!

I think we've got all the virus warning threats taken care of. I'd like to thank my brother for cleaning all that up!

Let me know if you guys have anything else come up or that looks fishy on the site. Thanks for your patience!

Everything looks good now, no warnings and I had my anti virus scan the webpage and got nothing so it all looks good now, I was ignoring the warnings for like a week cause I didn't think this site would have any issue and my virus scan has brought up false positives before, if anything happens again Ill be sure to let you know though.
