I'm running an iMac using Safari. Tonight I went to a site that I've been going to for months & this Google crap message kept appearing everytime I tried to navigate inside the site. The administrator has assured members it's an incorrect warning & he's contacted Google to get the warning deleted. My question is how is Google able to intercept my surfing to this site & prevent me from logging in or reading messages by displaying these warnings everytime I click my mouse? I don't use Google as a search engine nor do I have Chrome. Seems to me like an invasion of my privacy. So how do I get rid of this 'safe browsing diagnostics' crap from the latest Big Brother? Thanks, Joe.

Edit: After reading some similar threads on other forums it appears the problem is with Safari. I've de-selected the Preferences-Security option to notify me of fraudulent sites. Hope this doesn't open me up to something bad but I stay on the well-lit paved roads.

I've learned blood is not thicker than money.
