Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I've been unable to log onto for maybe a week now, because my DNS server (OpenDNS, @ ) has decided it's a phishing site!

WebOfTrust gives it an "orange" rating, at "Trust 47.5%". Has it been hijacked by evil folks, or has Bruce Lambert gone over to the Dark Side, or what??

I'm getting to it from my work network no problem.

It could be that the site has been compromised, but I don't see anything specific.

Of course, I wouldn't connected to the site via Windows if you paid me at ths point...   Cheesy

I just got this from Bruce by e-mail:
"hi norm,

the host server for fkc had been hacked by phishers and fkc forum files were some of the locations of the activity. it is now cleared up, thanks to the host operator.  Also, now there other forms of protection installed in hopes it will slow down or eliminate more of the same stuff......

however if you know for certain there is phishing activity please let me know......unfortunately i can't do anything with the files......i've tried deleting them and of course deleting doesn't do the host operator must deal with it.
