WBS, I wish I knew what's up with ArtsJournal's Google block, but I don't. I left my editor's job at the site at the end of 2008, but it's reeamnid my homepage ever since, and I'm basically seeing what you're seeing. I chose not to bug Doug McLennan about it today, since I assume he's logging hundreds of e-mails an hour right now asking why AJ is blocked.If I had to register a guess, I'd say their code got hacked, and Google picked up on the third-party bugs. AJ supports a ton of separate pages, and also hosts dozens of blogs which are all under the control of the bloggers themselves, some of whom are none too tech-savvy. I'd be willing to bet that the infected pages are on the blog side of things I've been bypassing the warning screen to AJ's front page for the last few hours with no ill effects
