Googling "league2000.co.uk" and looking at the google cache for the first hit, which is that site's home page, it seems to be just an innocent cycling club site. But clicking on the link in Firefox 5, gives me a "Warning - visiting this site may harm your computer!"

That's the trouble with cyclists - you never know where they've been! Razz

Getting the same here, with Chromium on Linux. Ram's avatar is hosting on the league200 site.

Just tried to delete my avatar and got this msg

Nice try, spammer. If you register, your account will be deleted. Go away.

Get the same msg when trying to change it to.

Have renamed it on my server however, I still can't select a new one in my profile... Mike, still get the above msg.

I've delete my site, apart from 1 directory that I don't have permissions to, have asked my host to delete it.

You'll still get the warning as I was not able to update my lxf forum profile to remove the link to my avatar.
