    I did notice clicking on some pages, and then going to certain spam sites, Chinese I think, but I attempted to remedy the problem so I don't get that anymore.

    But there certainly is some spam connected to the site.

    malware, no but the ads are highly aggressive. Added adblock at home and it is extremely faster posting speed.

    I use Avast Premium. It notifies you when you're being tracked...then you can block them individually of block all. I block all. Problem solved.

    You should have let this thread die.

    All you have done is raise unnecessary concern.

    This has turned you into a spam bot.

    Today is my day for cleaning up my screen.

    So all spam and spammers go onto the ignore list.

    Including you.

    Sorry, no choice.

    To kill your useless thread I need to put you on the ignore list.

    Sorry, no choice.

    I use adblock plus.
    If you want to get fancy you can use ghostery, and always use private browsing and clear your cookies often.

    I use a good Slovakian protection for my computer and I get no alert of a problem with the USMessageBoard site.
