Did I miss something about TCC?
I went to the site just now and got a blank page and Norton told me it had blocked a fake virus app site. address read Virus alerts.
I checked OLS and there hasn't been a sweeps posted for them since April.
Is the site?

I've had similar issues with the site going back 5 ro 6 years, I wonder if its intentional....even if its the ad network, the frequency in unacceptable.

Several years ago I got a nasty virus that ruined my computer from this site. Will never enter any sweeps from this site again.

That is why I stopped listing the giveaways from their site. Kept getting virus warnings.

You are all welcome.

Not saying someone else won't end up listing them on here. But I won't do it. A computer virus is a pain in the ass and don't want to put the members through the chance of getting one that ruins their systems.

Yep. Those two sites had far too many virus warnings.
