    Users who are found to promulgate FAKE NEWS on the forum in regard to this issue, intentional or otherwise, may find their access terminated. It is your responsibility to provide references to bona fide sources.

    FAKE NEWS, in this regard, is that which is posited by organisations, media, etc., that is repeated on the forum, or used to support personal opinion/hypothesis posted by users - FAKE NEWS is not necessarily the personal opinion/hypothesis being posted in itself, any issues with such should be challenged respectfully.

I find I'm continually being bothered by a box asking whether I want to download something called 'Flash 2' by 'Macromedia'. The box disappears when I press 'No' but reappears every few minutes. It only seems to happen on the YBW boards. Does anyone know how to stop it? Other than by pressing 'Yes', of course.
