Okay, so I have thottbot on an embeded page on my site. It's been like that for quite awhile. So today I go to my site and there is some message that's essentially "Warning: The embeded page links directly to a site that engages in selling gold. Since they are dishonest with their business practices and their business is based on lying and cheating, there is no reason to believe they will be honest with your information." directly above the embeded page that links to the Thottbot icon that links to thottbot.

Anyone know why this is the case?

I have temporarily removed the embeded page from my site, but I'd have rather not done this. I enjoy having thottbot on there as an added convenience to my guild members. I'm not really fond that guildportal is run on asp.net and only allow one form item per page but was willing to deal with it because including the form item in an embeded page is an okay enough work around. However having that message at the top of thottbot's site is pretty absurd.

I also would prefer for guild portal to not lose my business, I enjoy the features the site has to offer, it's simplistic and allows me to update and manage our guild site with minimal effort, but truth be told with just a little work, anyone can create a custom website as easily. However, if in order to get features which I would think I could get with guildportal (even if they require a work around), I need to go elsewhere, I might have to think about doing so...which is sort of sad for me since guildprotal's served us so well this far.

I cant tell you what happened to the code and why its there but ige owns thotbott as well as ogaming. Its been that way for quite some time now, and ige is a huge, if not the biggest, in game money seller out there.

I believe GP has blocked sites of a similar nature before. It used to be just RSS feeds but now they have the drop on embedded pages too it seems. The RSS from a dark age of camelot feed was also taken over by ige and blocked.
Its called moral policing, much like the swearing filters on forums. ige is in the business of selling cheating (you cant deny selling gold and PLing for cash isnt within the spirit of the rules of any game), and even within that framework its dealings are a little on the dodgy side so Im told.
Is there not another site other than thottbot you can use?

PS. can you post a screen of message just so I can see pls.
