I was going to look at a post by Dan Thomas, it’s title was about T-track, upon opening the post I got a message saying this was a deceptive site, looking further, I found 2 more of Dan Thomas’s post’s and both of those turned out to be a deceptive site.
what is going on?
Not sure if this is the correct way to report this or not, or if these are deceptive sites.

Just thought I would let everyone know about this in case it is a real problem.

Thanks
Smitty

Agreed. If you’re going to post a review then say something. I’ll never jump through hoops and go to a third party site. You’re wasting my time.

I had the exact same thing happen to me, Smitty. I was able to open it eventually. This has been happening quite frequently lately on this site. Not sure if its software on my side or what. I run google chrome, Norton, Malwarebytes and of course windows defender since I can’t turn it off. Trust me when I say Dan Thomas is not to blame, its something in our security prevention as it interacts with Lumberjocks. 90% of my “deceptive” site notifications are from Lumberjocks links and most of them are actually good links with no deceptive intentions at all.

I’m on a Kindle Fire and don’t get those deceptive site notices on Dan’s posts. Could it be your OS?

Lumberjocks is not a secured site, so I regularly get “deceptive site” or “Warning!! Go back to safety!” messages, even when I simply log on. These days, it is silly to run a website that is not secure, so I hope the admins upgrade the site soon. (Someone in another thread gave a suggestion for a free fix.)

I agree. It seems to me the video and the review is a sales pitch for one brand over another which I feel doesn’t belong here.

Sales Pitch? He’s giving us an alternative to buying Rockler T-Tracks. How does it not belong here?

It’s not the posts themselves. All the links just go to YouTube. It’s something to do with Lumberjock’s website.

I Posted this “Deceptive Site warning in “Coffee Lounge” on the 24th from another of Dans Posts ln Coffee Shop

HERE: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/283377 Different Topic though.

Along with a copy of the actual Red Warning Sign. I also clicked on a Site Link in his same Post. It’s Extinct and their return comment is also in My Post above.

Then I noticed and wrote this…... “WAIT A MINUTE! This Doesn’t show in his current “Activity List”! You have to go back to 04-08-2012 to find it! He’s Posting HIS 12 Year Old Topic?

Dan always used a “Public Account” at “Photobucket”. That gave access to anyone who wanted to see All of His Photos, Projects, Family, Or Everything else. There was also an “Original Source” Click On Option that took you to the Site where the Photo originally came from ….. enough said about that.

I’ll have a look at your mentioned Postings of His just to see what the Original Dates Are. They could very well just be New Comments.?

UH! OH! Couldn’t find his Posts that you are mentioning, so I can’t check the Original Dates. It’s a good idea Smitty to put a Link in your Post to The Post you are talking about (NOT Criticizing just Suggesting.)

Regards Rick

SEVERE EDIT!!! MY BIG BAD!! I thought you were talking about ”Dan’um Style”! But you were talking about Dan Thomas (I know it’s in the Opening and I KNOW He’s a Nice Guy!)

MY SINCERE APOLOGIES SMITTY!!
