Google malware notification revoked. Servers confirmed safe for all visitors.

Google site scanning found a piece of code on our site that could be interpreted as possible malware. We have made the appropriate substitutions and that has appropriately resulted in the warning status from Google being eliminated.

The site scanning technology was beneficial in alerting us of a possible problem; however, the automatic procedures, which necessarily followed, resulted in warning messages on numerous browser platforms. In addition, while we made our adjustments we had pages offline temporarily.

We are thankful for the opportunity to corroborate that we are clean and safe as we have been for over 12 years now. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and confusion that this may have caused.

As the technology that allows us the opportunity to share, learn and inspire each other with written text and images evolves, there will always be security risks involved and although the Google site scanning caused a temporary breakdown in the smooth flow of communications within the community, we are appreciative of their extra layer of security.
