Oh thank goodness. I had this happen yesterday and my computer wigged on me. I go on Funi's blog nearly every day, so I didn't understand for the life of me why it was happening.

I'd been even more amazed if this had anything to do with getting rid of the links for the places illegally downloading Funimations stuff. But other than that good work. Laughing

I didn't even know they had adds on there site. But it probably isnt that big a deal. Hell blizzard doesnt check there forum adds all the time and every so often there add company puts in gold selling adds.

I am not sure how add agencies sell stuff for web pages, but ti seems like everyone gets a bad one once. Glad they fixed it fast.

Figures that Funimation would try to put malware on people's computers, even if it was unknowingly.

All the more reason to stop supporting them, and just buy the raw DVD/Blu-rays from Japan. Very Happy

lol, while I would like to be able to do that, financially and language wise, I can't. So, I will stick with US releases for now.

Funimation had to fix this because Microsoft Internet Explorer 9.0--now in feature-complete Release Candidate 1 version--would have done the same thing because it too maintains an internal list of known malware sites and would have flagged the FUNi sites in question.

I'll laugh my ass off if you're playing these raws on a Sony player.

On topic: I had a feeling this is what was causing the flag. Ah, server farms. They're so wonderful to web developers but to everyone else... nyet!

Tell us again why we shouldn't be without adblocking software?

If the sites are now 'clean' why is dragonball.com still inaccessible?

Well, whoopty f***ing doo. Like that makes you any better than anyone else.

I've said this before, I'm sure not even 1% of the people on this site have any major japanese experinces so we have to keep our american companies open. Then again, I already know they're going to go down anyways, so i'm stocking up on titles so while people are paying 80 bucks for DVD's, i'll be watching stuff I paid 20 bucks for a long time ago.
