Something odd has hit the site...
I expect it is via (and probably only on) one of the advertisements.
I haven't seen any alert popups
but the top ad has gone funky and when I check using IE 11 it crashes the browser.

Metalbeast has been notified.

But be warned.. there are no shields to protect against Metalbeast (or me Crying or Very sad )
The odd issues were due to modifications on the site advertizing,
which apparently don't fully refresh until a certain time of the day.

So no virus or malware... just something to try to reduce the costs of running the site.
( I don't know the inner workings.. but apparently the payments stopped for certain advertizing sources.. but the advertizing didn't.)
