Problem With OutFoxed...

I wrote a few days ago about about a social software program that lets you use friends to help you scour the internet.

I've come across a problem.

I was searching for news, and while I normally go to Google news, I somehow came across a link that led me to fox news. When I tried to go to a site, a pop up warned me me that this was a 'dangerous' site. The warning had come from one of my 'contacts'. Normally this warning is saved for sites that can infect your computer with spyware, or the like. But some noble person was trying to save his 'friends' from conservative ideology.

So far I've been unable to figure out how to discount information from certain members. If they rate web sites in a reckless fashion, my computer needs to be able to somehow ignore them.

While this functionality may exist, I haven't been able to find it because their website is down.

I'll report more if I am able.

I am the biggest Clue fan ever! It was difficult to choose just one quote, because the whole script is fantastic.

Mrs. Peacock was a man?"

P.S. I like the picture. You look completely different from the mental picture I had of you.

Even if you're right, that would be one plus one plus two plus one, not "one plus two plus one plus one."

Clue is a movie I could watch or listen to all day, and not get tired of it.
