    something to do with the ads it seems. I use adblock anyway so they don't load.

    Is this written in some sort of code?

    I do have the ad blocker running, but this doesn't usually capture those on the Yehuda Moon site. Their ads don't tend to get up my nose, so I was happy with the usual situation, but there is no way on earth I'm going to bypass a Trojan warning.

    no it's an automated response to using the term ad-blocker, as one word see "adblocker"

    I'm sure there enough people around who can enlighten you to the existance of the Yehuda Moon comic strip. I'd paste the link myself if my internet security software wasn't throwing a fit over it. Basically, Yehuda Moon is a radical bike advocate and the comic strip is an amusing tale of his attempts to paint bike lanes everywhere. (Severly abridged version).

    Kapersky - internet security software.

    Trojan - nasty, pernicious, worm like, self replicating code that hijacks your computer.

    A great cartoon, but I too have trouble with the stie, which takes ages-seriously, geological time, anything up to half an hour-to load. My method is to open this forum in a new tab while it is getting on with loading itself.

    likely because of the ads it is using to pay for the site.
