Florimel, I'm not sure what would be causing that. If it keeps happening we can ask TVG_Frey about it.
It's not that big a deal since I don't follow the links, but I thought I'd pass it along and I wonder if it is happening only to me.
This sounds like some sort of malware or virus on your computer. I would have your local computer person check it out, as it has nothing to do with the site.
Everytime someone clicks on one of the links that are being promoted, somebody in a dark basement is making money off you.
I cannot give you any specific advice on how to remove it, but this article describes something close to what you're experiencing:

I ran two virus programs earlier today, Malware and Avast Antivirus and nothing showed up. However, those were quick scans and I'll fun full scans later tonight. I always have protection running and do a scan and drive clean weekly, but it never hurts to check. I brought it up here because so far, this is the only site where this has occurred.
Thanks for your advice and I'll check that link, tvg_frey.
I've been getting access denied address has been blocked messages when I try to post on here. It happened suddenly and without warning starting last week. The only way I can post here is to come through a proxy website. I otherwise have no problems coming here and reading. Did you change some settings somewhere?
I suspect you are being blocked because the IP you are coming from has been reported as one that is spreading malware, viruses or part of a botnet. If you goto What Is My IP - Shows Your IP Address and let me know the IP, I can verify this for you.
If I verify that your IP is part of these activities, its very possible that your computer has been compromised.
I tried to log on from my new cell phone, was denied, and told my name had been blacklisted. Never seen anything like that before; no problem logging on from my computer. I could log on from my old cell phone (Blackberry). Help!
I tried to pm it but because of the access denied issues I was unable to PM it as well. I couldn't sit around on my lap top as it's not a recreational lap top and frankly typing on my phone is next to impossible.
