    It seems to happen only when I click on a thread that features a pornstache, for some reason.

    Same here. It only happens on certain threads. Maybe one of these ads is setting off a security alarm based on browser settings.

    I've been getting the error message saying that I'm trying to connect to action.yda.org but the security certificate belongs to secure.democracyinaction.org

    It only happens on certain threads and certain pages of those threads at differing times.

    It happened just a few minutes ago and when I tried going back into the thread to see if I could figure out whose picture or avitar might be causing it, I didn't get the message. So I don't know what's going on.

    yda.org is Young Democrats of America (or something very similar to that)

    I can't remember if I was getting this before installing the ad-block plug-in on Firefox or not.

    The same thing happened to me yesterday, on certain threads (not today, yet). I guess one particular member here was/is causing this?

    Just figured it out. Freelance Hack's signature picture is from yda.org and for some reason the security signature there is from a different site and that's triggering the alert we're all getting.

    I hope someone sends him a PM so this mess can be sorted out.

    I got it to when I clicked on a thread (can't remember which one).
    More than likely, its coming from a photo someone posted
