    The early password change is a safety measure, due to reports of unwanted popups appearing.

    It was partially cleaned up by Diamond Damien, but a new report
    has surfaced. Be assured that our Admins are aware of this and
    are working on these issues as we speak.

    Thank You - "Wiz"

    I'm sorry, adware popups? None of you have adblockers? Or did the ad bypass it?

    Thank You Very Much...) :cool:
