I logged in this morning and was invited to participate in a NWHikers.net survey with a few "winners" displaying their new "prizes" (a new laptop). Sheesh....

I got that on my lesser known email host yesterday.  I did notice this site moving very slowly two nights ago.

Ditto, except I was offered free NWH porn. Then I got to thinking what all of you look like naked and...well...I turned the computer off early that day.

After looking at the roller coaster page you linked (the side ads anyways), I'd imagine NWH porn would be a little on the tame side.

For the OP, I occasionally get messages from 'NWH admin' that aren't really from NWH.  I opened one (the first) a few months back that loaded such a severe case of malware that I had to take the machine to the shop.

You mean I didn't really win a car? Probably shouldn't have given them my credit card # to cover the license fee. bawl.gif

There are ads on the side? Didn't even see those. I was there for the pictures, not the articles. *rimshot

Has anyone else seen these messages?  If the message showed up when you logged in to this site, my guess is your computer might be infected with a virus and it generates that message based on the URL of the site you visit.

Yeah, logging in from a motel computer makes me very suspicious of anything. Now I'm bummed that it turns out that I can't really win a new laptop!   bawl.gif

I had a blocked pop-up when I logged in this morning. It didn't appear a second time.
