    Well, hillbilly8sh*t, if there is spywere, how did you find it and nobody else has? If you did find it were is it in our O.S's. This has been a pretty good site and I've had no problems. I've run anti-spy were progrems before with no problems. Speak or be soundly flammed.

    let me ask you bp...do you get it on the main page or in the threads. my guess is its an identifing cookie...which is spyware. i dont allow activeX so i could be wrong and there has been a third java script added. Some members ive told about 3rd party cookies being passed by the banners they use as signitures but ive seen nothing from this site resembling spyware.

    this is a serious acusation so please give more details

    I can tell you for certain that this site has no spyware. It does utilize cookies, which may be detected as spyware. And if it did have spyware, it would have been brought to our attention long before now (right folks?)
