Skip to comments.Google Chrome Browser Warning me about FreeRepublic using "malware" site

When I go to the "My Comments" (Pings: http://www.freerepublic.com/perl/pings) link on FR, I get this:
Anyone else? Admin?
Curious timing for a Google urging to blow off FreeRepublic, eh?
Google has chosen to be another enemy of the people.
I just put “fineartamerica.com” into my search engine and it came back with a green light from Norton Site Safe and a big “OK” banner from Symantec Site Analysis.
This sure smells of dirty trick.
I wouldn’t put it past the leftists to pull an evil stunt like this.
My Kaspersky 2012 flagged it.
It’s probably a photo someone linked to in a reply.
I’m not getting that with the same link using Chrome.
I just checked mine. It didn’t happen to me.
Maybe the regime is upset with all of the truthfulness coming out of FreeRepublic.
Let me guess off the cuff that fineartamerica is a porn site
"Of the 16205 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 0 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2012-11-04, and suspicious content was never found on this site within the past 90 days."
The only thing in the reported information even close to an issue was the following:
"In some cases, third parties can add malicious code to legitimate sites, which would cause us to show the warning message."
I have NoScript installed with Firefox. Maybe that's preventing me from seeing the warnings.
Using Chrome here as I type, usually this can happen when a post has or had a link to a site on the blacklist. Clear your cache and try again. Sites with ads may also have served up a malicious ad at one time, not Freerepublic but the linked site.
did you try the same with other well known conservative websites?
“Its probably a photo someone linked to in a reply.”
I just did a google search and right there under the link for fineartamerica it says “This site may harm your computer”
Really?! ,Bookmark will check later
Must keep an eye on those Russians...
Chrome is blocking fineartamerica, but it isn’t blocking my comments page.
On the other hand, it could explain why FR is slow. Just a thought.
They hit Nachum’s site a LONG time ago. It’s safe, I keep going back.
Stop NOW and run a complete anti-viral/malware scan of your computer.
