So this is a new feature of this website which is very annoying and even a little scary: When I click on a page number to read more in a thread... as soon as that page comes up, something jumps into my downloads. I don't know what it is, because I immediately delete it. This is a "new" development to me, because I have been a member since 2009 and never had any unwanted downloads appearing on my hard drive. (Or if I did, they never appeared this way before). On my Mac, I see it jump into my downloads because this computer animates that action. So I open my "downloads folder" and there is something I didn't intentionally download that is named "index." It looks like a website, the way my computer displays it. When I joined up here, I'm sure I agreed to allow cookies. If that's all this is, okay. Maybe one of the admins can explain what is happening. I'm writing this on a 2015 Mac Book Air, running OS 10.14. These days, we can't trust anybody, or anything. Especially online. So I'm reporting this 'new thing" publicly, hoping someone knows what it is. If it's some kind of marketeering spam bot, let's squash it and boycott its clients. If it's spyware, let's take it down, strip it down, and neutralize its secrets. If it's malware, let's reverse it on its creator(s). If it's harmless ETSG functions, I hope admins can figure out a less annoying way for it to work. Right now, I'm going to be very cautious if I return to this site. I don't like to feel paranoid, which is one reason I am a Mac user. My computers have had very little trouble in the last twenty years... but that doesn't mean it can't happen.
