    When I try to log on I get a warning that reads something like: "Malware detected. If you continue on to this site it may harm your computer. "Continue" - "Go Back" "

    I select "Go Back".

    Anyone else post there?

    I do but don't have any way to contact them to let them know... anyone?

    Why not contact the decemberists forum. There should be a contact link somehwere on the site. If not I'd just avoid the place given that its infected with malware.

    It is fixed ... I guess...

    I couldn't get to the forum. I was warned to go back so I did. But thanks for the input.
    ;)

    Unfortunately this does happen and the typical advice to stay away until its fixed is the safest approach.
