Busy again and less time for blogging recently, however I’ve been getting a few emails about this so it is worth highlighting that Google Chrome throws a wobbly for people trying to view the site. The problem seems to be the links from the blog to Kevin’s http://www.climateapplications.com which holds images for some of Kevin’s posts. I’ve known about this to some extent for at least a month. My AV software rebelled when I went to look up some maps; Kevin (who is an IT professional) checked his site and it was clean.
Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera do not flag up any problems with DITC, but Google Chrome is not happy:
When I try to visit Climate Applications I get this message:
Clicking on the “Why was this page blocked?” button brings up the following:
I suppose I could chalk this up as a ‘yeah, this sh*t happens’ but with the recent problems that Jo Nova and GWPF have had, I do wonder if this is more than a random attack. Thank goodness I’ve stayed with WordPress hosting.
Kevin’s pretty busy these days and I’ve had conflicting thoughts of what to do about this. On one hand most readers, or at least regulars will realise that a WordPress blog is not a problem in itself, but there’s always the desire for new readers to find the blog and increase their understanding of issues discussed. The last thing we want is for someone seeking information to be deterred from reading viewpoints that differ from the standard pro-AGW view (but of course there are certain people who WOULD like to prevent that).
It seems I have a choice. I can ignore this and carry on – but why should I give in to a bullying tactic, if that’s what it is? – or, I can download and save copies of the images on WordPress itself and remove the ‘offending’ links to prevent anyone from being put off. So the question is – which?
