Malware?
On pages 1630 and 1631 of the "Economics of saving agriculture..." thread in Chrome, I'm seeing the page flash.  Malwarebytes pops a "Website blocked" warning, and the log says:

I can't see it in the HTML, it may be in an image or something tricky. I'd look for something that appears only on those two pages.

Page numbers are meaningless without knowing your posts-per-page setting.

I can't see it in the HTML, it may be in an image or something tricky. I'd look for something that appears only on those two pages.

there are two images from that site on page 1630, showing photos of pages of a book.  That post is probably quoted on page 1631.

Norton antivirus doesn't prevent me from seeing the image or visiting the link.  It's an image hosting site.  I'm really not sure why malwarebytes is being finicky about it.

its probably looking at the .cc site extension
hit the ignore button, or manage and add postimg.cc to exclude list

or uninstall norton

Yeah, the problem is happening with the malwarebytes antivirus app.
