I get it when I go here:

http://forum.escapeartists.net/index.php?topic=24.0

I've had it come up once or twice before (don't recall the circumstances). I'm not ABOUT to go to that website. :P

It was a problem with the avatar of a user who posted on that page. I believe I corrected it - do you want to go back to the page and see if you still get the same message?

It's gone, thanks. :)

I got the same popup twice when going to the first page of the "what are you reading" thread, and also hit cancel.

Well, as I said, it shouldn't happen again - what seems to have happened is that one of the posters on that page has lost his domain registration, and the avatar image was on the old domain. Whoever now controls the domain has tweaked the settings - the pop-up was coming from that server, not ours. It's not a porn site or anything (I braved the link to see), I think the strange message about Tom's Pretties is some sort of password reminder.

In any case, I removed the avatar so there's no reason for it to reoccur.
