If you receive a pop-up page warning you that this site contains malware -- the superbug of the internet world -- it's because past posts on this site have included funny workplace photos from the Cheezburger websites, which Google claims is spreading evil malware. The company that serves up Cheezburger's ads, a Google online advertising competitor named iSocket, says that it scans the crap out of its ads for malware (my phrasing). Still, Google's Chrome Browser is blocking iSocket's content on sites ranging from Gawker.com to Blogger.com. If you use the Chrome browser, you could have a hard time accessing the range of sites that use iSocket as an online advertising distributor. From what I hear, the Google-iSocket saga has been going on for about six months.
Rest assured, I've got my crack IT staff working full-time on this problem, and I'm sure that the Cheezburger people have a crack team of LOLcats on it as well. In the meantime, using a different browser will bypass the problem. I'm sure there's nothing nefarious about Google making life tough for a competitor in the advertising world (after all, their motto is "Don't be Evil", or is it "Don't be Elvis?")? The problem should be rectified soon, one can hope.
I promise that the only malware I deliver are infectious 1980s YouTube grooves and bouts of contagious workplace sarcasm. I've got my crack team of LOLcats working on that this morning, too.
