Considering opera makes up barely 1% of search data, Its not really relevant.

You and a few other people might be using it from this forum.

My point wasn't opera, my point is that SOMETHING may have triggered it.

Chrome on OS X gives me a warning that HTTPS is broken for the site (considering it's not enabled) but doesn't prevent me from opening it. Opera probably took it a step farther.

My Opera says that the Forum has been reported by Yandex, the Russian equivalent of Google.

Firefox picked the forum up today as a "deceptive site". I havent seen that and I have been on since the site rebuild a few days ago. I reported it to firefox as being a legit site.

Same here....not sure what's going on, but I had the same exact thing today with Firefox, and I also reported it as legit.

Safari showing new URL as suspected phishing site also this morning, it let me continue, also report to google it was not phishing.

FYI when the change was done old to new service, several times the redirects did not go to the new site, but instead some sort of spam page. If I see that again, I'll post, that may have been what is triggering this. So that redirect spam may have tainted the new URL

It may be because of the redirect that is running from the old server. Google may be detecting that and marking this as a phishing site, i.e.. it points to another url on a different server.

I get "Suspected Phishing Site", probably your host is inadvertently hosting some bad guys who got them flagged. I bet the emails you send are going into spam folders now too.

I don't follow this or know much but a few years ago it happened to a client and they had to pay for a service to clean things up, it is extortion more or less.

Just an aside but the "Enos Forum" artwork at the top right of the header is funky too, the edges are dithering poorly.

Keep in mind that a lot of browsers use "safe browsing data" from Google. My guess is Google is at the root of the problem.

For fun, those technically inclined, block all access to google.com in your router filter. You will be amazed at what breaks and what gets faster. The amount of data Google is collecting and managing is mind boggling.
