If I sound lackadaisical, it is because I have seen that warning when other joints went offline temporarily, then returned. Also, from a variety of UseNet or Torrent addresses.
I do run AdBlock+, as well as NoScript (which can be a royal pain).
Most of my malware has come when I was seeking accommodations in third world countries for holiday.

That said, I understand how others might shy away from that warning, which I personally view as intimidation and not a little coercion from the Thought Police.
I have faith that the masterminds behind Info are aware of the warning and are endeavoring to rectify the problem.
I also have faith they shall get this sorted out sooner rather than later.

While the site was still up, I downloaded all of the RAR files containing the DLCs, NZBs, etc, from Fanedit.info (except for two that were offline). I also saved the page listing and linking to them as an mht file. I scanned the files for viruses (the scan showed up clean) and put them all into a 22 MB zip file. If anyone is interested, PM me.

If this post violates Fanedit.org rules, please inform me.

As long as you aren't posting the links, which you aren't, you should be fine.

Yeah, just getting the 'brb' message now, after the site seeming to be back properly the other day. Damn. What the hell does 'brb' stand for, I wonder?
