    It's because you were banned for non-participation.

    Re: Cannot get to main forum page

    Many parts of the CF site - main page links, profiles, some functions - are still dead as of 0740 EDT this morning. Going on 4 days now.

    See Posts 6 and 7 for an inconvenient workaround.

    Re: Cannot get to main forum page

    I PM'd 4 regular members - who are not paid supporters. All but one logs into CF by using a saved link to the forum(s) they normally post in.

    The fourth logs in through the main CF blue page - and the center link to "Cadillac Discussions" gives the same blank page with message at top left.

    You can ping Cadillacforums.com and get a return so the site is still registered.

    That's not what I asked. I asked if it was abandoned. GMconnects is still registered but was abandoned by its owners in 2012. The site is still there but links don't work. The owners didn't even have the courtesy of turning it off or posting a notice on the site.

    Re: Cannot get to main forum page

    i'm getting some malware warnings (from google)

    if i google search for a thread a want the google result is often either an archive (t-xxxxxx) link or a printable (xxx-print.html) link

    when i click the link to switch to regular forum view it quickly loads the page and then i get the google malware warning



    google's safe browsing site says that stimpco.com (which our forums links to somewhere/somehow) is hosting malware from nt-stats.cz.cc
    google found 39 exploits ... so not good

    http://google.com/safebrowsing/diagn...e=stimpco.com/




    so what does this all mean?

    I'm not quite sure really since I haven't delved into the code to find out what exactly is going on
    and frankly AutoGuide has people on payroll to deal with this kind of stuff
    and thats probably why the forum is broken right now

    two possible scenarios come to mind
    1 - the forum's been hacked and they're trying to fix it
    2 - or the admins have disabled some stuff to prevent the forum from being hacked

    either way is not really good but 1 is much worse since that would mean that and unknown number of forum members are probably infected

    anyone else have any thoughts, or maybe the admins might feel like clueing us in to what's going on

    I got a reply from my obscene PM that indicates that they are totally clueless that anything has been wrong.

    Re: Cannot get to main forum page

    well the evidence i just posted says otherwise ... one would think that an organization such as AutoGuide would run a bit tighter ship
