Hi,
It's a link advisor in your security package... warning about a link destination posted by a member in that thread, not SN itself.

Newer security packages seem to check links on a page and warn about where they end up ...most of the time it's a bit of unwarranted scaremongering (they also slow down page loading for the user, I've switched it off in AVG))

To sum up... SN found not guilty ;)
cheers,
Andy
