That's different [In reply to] Can't Post

I can make some guesses, but I wouldn't worry too much about it. A couple precautions you can do in the event you're worried it's something malicious.

Clear your internet cache and cookies.
Run some malware detection software like ad-aware, spybot, or go to housecall-- it scans your system from their website.

Those are both steps that it's wise to do periodically anyway, so you may already be doing them.

I would think the most likely case is a glitch when your browser was loading, and either hitting a wrong cookie, or you somehow picked up a link to CNN (via an ad most likely) from another website onto your clipboard that glitched into the URL spot.

As Altaira says, let us know if it happens again. =)


Good night, tOR.Nados. Good work. Sleep well. I'll most likely delete you in the morning.
