    I don't know for sure but I think I picked up a malware virus last week by clicking on a link posted on the "general" forum. My firewall warned me but the virus got through and it took me a day of downloading software to get rid of the persistant pop-up nasty stuff. It's something to keep in mind before linking to obscure sites.
