I tried to PM Dave but I see nothing in my sent folder.

I sent two PMs.

This is probably no big deal, but we shall see.

Yeah, I don’t know why that result is coming up. When I check the site with Google’s tools, it says the site is fine. I’m going to wait to see if it goes away. If not, I’ll try to figure out what’s causing it.

I found out what’s causing that message. A couple of other sites that use the same hosting service were briefly infected with malware back in January. The problem has been fixed, but the warning will continue to show for 90 days.
