Malwarebytes has been blocking www.gamesquad.com for a week or so due to phishing activity (it claims). I have been continuing to the site anyway and haven't had a problem. Just letting you know.

Someone wrote me that he received a PM from Malwarebytes...
As much as mods can kill spam posts, I don't think that we have the power to spy the PM - nor the will in my case.

That's not what this is. Malwarebytes is an anti-virus application, and they have placed this site on their list of blocked sites so that whenever anyone who has malwarebytes installed on their device tries to access this site, it is blocked. A brief search on the internet indicated that when this happens, if the owner of the site sends an email to malwarebytes support, stating that it must be a mistake, they will most often remove the site from their list.

Ah I see.
I misunderstood the PM.
