I get this warning (a lot) visiting this site. I'm using Chrome
Warning: Something's Not Right Here! www.tomshardware.com contains content from planetsmilies.net, a site known to distribute malware. Your computer might catch a virus if you visit this site.

Help improve detection of malware by sending additional data to Google about sites on which you see this warning. This data will be handled in accordance with the Safe Browsing privacy policies.
Please let us know what page you are visiting when it happens. There are spammers who post smilies (or even transparent images) here which silently cause your browser to download an affiliate cookie, and this might be the cause of that warning. We want to get rid of those spammers
I believe the issue is with an image and link that you are posting on the site from the site ***. I have removed that image from your posting on the IB thread. However, clearly, Google thinks planetsmilies has viruses on it. Therefore, anytime a person posts an image from or link to that site, Chrome will give a warning. Could you please refrain from doing that?
EDIT: Actually, it appears an admin has already blocked that site, so now future posts can contain that URL. Therefore, there won't be a problem in the future.
