Content from www.ravingbikefiend.com, a site known to distribute malware on BikeForum

When trying to open: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...1#post12871701

Chrome gives me this message:

I'm getting this message a few places, too. It seems to only be on the second page or later in a thread.

I get this constantly. It seems to be most prevalent in the Hybrid forum, but I've seen it in the Commuter forum as well. It's pretty much a thread killer in extended threads. I can read one page, but not the next, then I can read another, but not the next 2 or 3 pages, etc.
My guess is it's something in someone's .sig line, but since I can't see it, I can't tell for sure.

It's really comforting that the mods are no where to be found on this topic, not.

There have been a couple of threads on this subject already:
http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread.php/743939-Testing
http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ing-from-an-ad

The site is owned by a BF member; his site was hacked and he's working on cleaning it up.
