WARNING WARNING WARNING

I clicked on the link and after I saw the picture of Bin Laden with a black towel around his head with a steelers emblem on it, I closed the link and then hundreds of blank internet screens started to pop up.

I had to shut my computer down in order to get it to stop.

Nothing happened to me...maybe it's just Steelers fans.

Nothing happened on my end either, and I'm at work behind a pretty restrictive firewall and Websense rules - if there was an invisible redirect within the site code to a malicious URL, I'm highly confident it would have been blocked from here. You may want to run a full antivirus and spyware scan on your PC.

No malicious link, but I still suggest not even looking at that avatar. Just stupid.

Yes, The exact same thing happened to me. Don't know what the hell it was. I had to do a force shut down and when I rebooted and scaned with adware/spybot/antivirus nothing was found.

In that case, it's probably something with that site, and I'm removing the link and closing the thread to be safe. Sorry, 'Mongol.
