I dont see it.  But, if there is a way to shut off this "feature" I'd love to know where it is and how to do it.

Also, it has broken the mail function.  The link you get in this warning box does not take you to the message.  This needs to be fixed (yes, I've already submitted a support ticket).  I'm curious what others think about this.

I hate it.  As a paying customer I'd prefer the option on this security function.

Agreed. The mail function no longer works, and because you're rewriting all external links, the "powered by wowhead" script can no longer pop up tooltips.

If we -have- to have this interceptor, perhaps it could be customized with a whitelist for links to sites like wowhead, and could you please make it recognize javascript links and not rewrite those?

I want this Feature gone NOW! This is total [bull waste]! I didnt pay for this crap, if this is the way GP has to do things im gonna leave this site. If this so called  " FEATURE" was in place when i was looking for a host site, i would have NOT picked GP.  Ive sent in a ticket, i would like to hear what GP is going to do.. so i know what direction i need to go.

Hmm, I don't know if they deleted the other post about this or if the TC deleted it but I'll reiterate my displeasure with this feature here.  This feature needs to go or my guild will find a new host.

I'm a paid subscriber.  I DO NOT want the external site warning on my website.  I can't even begin to express my anger towards this new "feature".  Remove it.

This is BS:

Well at least E-mail is back and functioning properly.  Thank god for small blessings.

This has to be the worst idea I've seen here in the history of ...ever.

Maybe Aaron got rickrolled once too many, I don't know.  All i know is if this is still up when my subscription comes due I WILL NOT give GP more of my money.

Why did guildportal code writers put this 'feature' in? What is the benefit?

As a paying customer, I dislike it. It's a distraction, inconvenience to those who visit our website.

yeah, this new "feature" is full of fail.  Why does GP put this stuff in without notifications?
