    That will happen on any page where a poster has been too lazy to remove their long dead Raptr link.  At least in Chrome.  You can turn that Chrome alert off in it's settings or report the offending poster here through the flagging system.

    Time to do a backend query and find all posters with '%raptr%' in their signature and set it to null, or something funny. :lol:

    It is not a poster thing,i got this with THIS sites article on EA vice president.No other article or post is giving me this same warning.
    So why is this sites article/thread redirecting us to Raptr.com?
    If my memory serves me,this site had some partnered advertising going on with some gaming platforms involved with rewards if we used their site.I can't keep track of them all or all the disguised advertising that goes on here but i do remember at least 2 similar partners or maybe it was the same outfit twice trying to get us to sign up.

    It is a user signature issue.  I've removed raptr.com signatures from all users in the database.

    Didn't Raptr shut down a while ago? any activity related to it today would be automatically suspicious.

    Welp, that took eleven months.  And two (one removed) conspiracy posts.  https://forums.mmorpg.com/discussion/474750/a-cookie-for-raptr-com-on-a-forum-thread-link-here-causes-chrome-to-block-access-to-the-thread#latest

    Thank you for the somewhat belated correction.

    Yes. And while it was around there was no phishing associated with it that I can recall. The problem is that since they closed down that domain has been associated with phishing scams and those leftover old sigs some people still have link to that domain.
