YAHOO! is the problem. They are putting this message on every yola website: Warning: Dangerous Downloads Just go to their search engine and type in the term: yolasite.com and see for yourself. They even put the warning up for YOLA site's main page link itself!!!! My opinion is that they are pissed because when they closed geocities, a lot of people migrated to yola instead of giving in to their forced migration to their paid site with their outrageous charges. So they are trying to shut down the competiton. That is my opinion. Anyone else having problems with Yahoo?

Hi Tony -

Thank you for the heads up! It appears that someone on Yola is hosting something that has been flagged as dangerous, and as a result, Yahoo's search is warning ALL of yolasite. This is unfortunately what can happen with automated systems, as they're not set up for hosting sites such as ours that have multiple sites on one domain.

We have contacted Yahoo! and are in the process of resolving this. Thank you for your patience, we hope to have this fixed soon.

Thanks!

Stephanie
