    So it turns out that planet----smilies is a malware site so it's been added to the word censor. I advise anyone that has that site bookmarked to remove the bookmark and get your system scanned asap.

    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    I didn't intend to give people a bum steer about the planetsmilies site as a source for emoticons. Since I'd never used planetsmilies myself, I wasn't aware of its problems.

    I'm usually too lazy to go looking for emoticons on other sites. I just use whatever is available on the board.

    Someone on another board recommended planetsmilies months ago, and others seemed enthusiastic about it, and so I assumed it was OK.

    Wrong. "Never assume anything."

    So after a bit of research planetsmilies.com comes up clean. The .net version has a "suspicious conditional redirect" which means they send you to a site that has nothing to do with smilies.

    Malware scan for planetsmilies.com .... http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/...netsmilies.com

    To view the scan for the .net site visit the url for the .com and replace the .com with .net.
