Avast warning on PSX-SCENE
Yeah, that can be a problem when grabbing pictures from other sites to use in news stories, for one thing it slows down the page loading, and the second thing if the domain you are grabbing a picture from is blacklisted, then the main site (like this one), gets pulled into the trap also.
When I was helping out here as the hosting admin, I used to convert all the main pictures, and sometimes even ones in highly traffic threads that members included, and host them directly from the server.
Doing the above extra step when posting news stops this sort of problem, and also speeds up page loading, and removes any outside threats from other sites.
The only bad thing is that is it greatly increases server bandwidth, but it is well worth the cost to prevent this types of problems.

Reason: bad grammer, no more morning coffee duties.
Same thing happening to me too, using Avast 6.0.1091 free version, everytime I go to the main page.
