I don't know if this is the place to ask but here goes. I use Popurls to follow a lot of news and other sites. MetaFilter is on the popurls site and I can never get on it. Whenever I click on a link it slows as "This file has been deleted" for everything. I thought maybe I had to register but can't even do that, I get the same "file deleted" for everything. I asked google and every link "You guessed it" is the same problem. Mostly I say the heck with it, if it's so hard to get in, then forget about it. Occasionally, like now it bothers me, is it me or a setting on my pc, how can this be? This is not a big deal, I've gotten along all my life without MetaFilter so life will go on without it, but the question remains "why"?
