Just now I searched for the term "ascii chart" and all the results had the link "This site may harm your computer". All the others terms returned results with the same message.
Is it just me or anybody else experiencing this?

I agree it pretty much useless... There is no link on the warning page to just continue on even. You have to manually correct the URL in the address bar.

Well, if it's meant to discourage people from going to the malicious site, you can't make it too easy to get there, now can you?

Yeah. I was getting that when searching earlier for every hit. Gotta be a glitch. It was saying msdn was dodgy... Looks fine now, for me.

Speaking of Google, it must really love this site(/cboard.cprogramming.com).

I made a post in the Tech Forum 12 hours ago, and when I did a search for it now, using only 4 keywords, it is listed as number 2, on page 1 of search results. Another combination(still same keywords) results in #4, page 1.

That is phenomenal. This site has massive potential to attract visitors, if it's posts get indexed that quickly. :)

They have fixed it but earlier today, I did a searche for "Google" and it came back telling me that google.com may be dangerous :)

Have you ever looked at the full user list and not seen Google's spider sniffing around? Yahoo!'s, MSN's, and Ask's spiders are here all the time, too. Frequently in multiple instances.

What is this "full user list"? I have never seen it before. :p
I thought google crawler and others are invisible when they visit any site.

On the main page, "Currently Active Users" (the words themselves) are a link.

There are four pages currently. By the way, I'd like to add that :.:ANYBODY:.: can do it with a chart, Steve.

I believe he's referring to your original Google search, which was for an ASCII chart.

Google mistakenly put all their known URLs on the dangerous list. It has been corrected and there are several news stories on it floating around the web.
