I checked all the links (and the thread itself) one-by-one, and I did not have a malware warning...

Nothing for me on pc or phone and no warnings when I opened the links.
I play less now but I'll always be around, lets keep this site and battlefront going. :)

Upon opening the thread I inadvertently summoned an ancient ghost who could only be subdued after hours of chanting and wailing.

I think that might have been what Phobos's computer detected.

Could it be a signature not a link in the thread?

I'm assuming some of your security settings are just high enough to detect the slightest hint of something odd. I went back through the thread again, and all the signature links, but nothing seems to be summoning this warning.

I get no warnings, but also have sigs and avatars turned off.

Phobos says the issue is resolved, something to do with Chrome and a corrupt book mark. 

I will close this thread.

Thanks all.
