did this just show up? I don't recall a google search resulting in so many flags like that.

I'm getting it, too. I just click through. Probably some lawyer's thing, but another annoying step for users.

When I do a Google search it is showing up for every single site on the first page in the search results. Everything from the NY Times website to the U.S. EPA website to the WoodenBoat website is getting this warning. I'd say that something major went wrong with an update Google made to their system last night (I don't know that they made an update last night, I just know that overnight Friday night is a common time to make major updates to computer systems).

I got it for the first time this morning. Worrisome.

It even comes up searching the WB forum and my own site. Some kind of google snafu I would say.

It's a CIA conspiracy, they don't want you to find out the truth to how Bob Marley died.

It was a Google glitch which has been fixed. Google on!
