    No, no, there's nothing wrong. You're the only person there. Surely you're not surprised?

    No, I haven't checked it. I was teasing you (sorry). I don't go to DP. I'm not a fan. I was entertained that you came here and asked your question - we're the competition.

    There's definitely a problem.
    Don't be sorry, but I wouldn't worry about it too much.
    I'm sure it'll be fine.

    I heard from soulscratch that there was a problem with the database over there not updating. Not sure if it's true or not, but I can tell you that if you do have a virus, that site isn't responsible for it.

    For future reference the best method to prevent drive by malicious attacks is the Firefox No Script plugin. Takes care of Javascript attacks at least which will be the majority of what you'll come across.

    Why does everyone always assumes they have a virus? It would be a pretty moronic virus if it grabbed the HTML of the site, removed the "who is online" listing and replaced it with just your nick.

    So you had a virus that deleted the who is online list on a forum and then somehow figured out which nick you have and inserted that there?

    Everyone who thinks that all people who uses computers are experts are the ones who are morons..sorry.
    Making assumptions without knowing anything about the subject matter is what makes you look stupid, not being a "newbie". Asking something like "hey, what's going on there?" sounds so much better than "omg wtf is it a virus?!?!??".

    Off Topic:

    (Icheb, I'd either change "makes you look stupid" to "makes one look stupid" or add a disclaimer at the end of the post like "I'm using the word 'you' in the general sense of the word, if I offended you, I apologize." - just a friendly non-staff suggestion.)
