So, I just searched for us on Google, and my Webroot identifies No Goblins Allowed as a "Moderate Risk," saying "When visiting this website there is some probability that you will be exposed to malicious links or payloads."

Is this something we should be worried about? Is it something we can do something about?

This isn't anything I've heard of before, and I've certainly never encountered any such things here. Unless maybe it's picking up links posted by spambots?

Honestly, I don't know enough about how Webroot works to make a reasonable guess as to why it's labeled us like that.

Why does the Magic Duels subforum appear before the index on Google when you search "No Goblins Allowed" anyways? Shouldn't the index (or front page whenever you get that working) appear first?

I just tested this with Avast and it gives us a thumbs-up. I don't know how Webroot works though. I also don't know how Avast works but let's not focus on that.

Sounds good to me. I've never had any troubles, it just gives me a little yellow dash as opposed to a green checkmark on the google search, and I thought I'd bring it to your attention.

If I type "nogoblinsallowed" into Google, I get the index page first with six links below that to magic duels, magic duels decklists subforum, duels 2015 decklist subforum, magic, art flavor storylines, and spoiler room respectively.

However if I type with spaces, I get the same results as you.

I do believe that google puts results that people click on more often higher on the list, which would mean that people searching for "no goblins allowed" are searching for the Magic Duels subforum more often than not. If that is the way google handles its results, then it could also be an artifact of an earlier period where people were doing that, and now that it's the first result people are simply clicking that link to get to NGA without wanting the Magic Duels subforum specifically.

Well, Webroot isn't wrong. There is some probability that a user posts a malicious link, although I don't know if that is the rationale.
It's also not something we can feasibly do anything about.

Every so often when I come here, Avast says it's revoking this site's web certificates because of something called *.lejit.com
