Americanthinker "Malware" False Positive

Been getting reports from Chrome users that Cappy Cap is blocked because we link to Americanthinker and it is a known malware site.  I believe this is a "false positive," but if anybody else is getting these warnings please let me know.

Thanks,

Cappy

UPDATE - I deleted the American Thinker link from my blogroll.  Let me know if you still get it.

Tested on Chrome and Firefox and you're fine.

Your blog just gave me the same notice about malware that mine used to; my blog no longer sends out that notice because I just removed every link I had to American Thinker (had the site listed on my favorite links on a sidebar), while still keeping the quote I used and crediting them. I'll put the link back up once the American Thinker site fixes the problem. I just noticed the malware post about 1 hour ago.

I have been prompted to download "apps" for my android phone on several conservative blogs lately; and I suspect that they have been "hacked" or someone has exploited their comment system.

Google has (probably) responded to this by blocking these blogs.

Yep. I just got the warning. But I'm not worried, because I don't use Windows.

Where in Florida are you going to be?

I got the warning page at Thinker in Firefox, but not here.

Lemme go back and check.....

Yes its a problem. As its loading your page it exits out to warn me of bad software on the website.

Norton flagged it as "a known attack site" when I went there just now. A big red pop up covered my screen. I don't get those often.
