I, personally, feel that the interceptor page becomes too invisible to serve as a barrier to keylogging sites. However, disallowing links in the forums will simply diminish the usability of them, and serve as a major annoyance to users.The problem is that there is no logic behind the interceptor page. It does not display that page only when you are going to a known dangerous site, it intercepts any and all links. If there was a function of "Report this link as dangerous," and some underlying logic that restricted either the page or the domain based on the number of reports, then the interceptor page would only appear to warn people when they should be warned and would not become as invisible as it is now.As it stands, I just click through the interceptor. However, I have McAfee site advisor on my system, and when that tells me that a site is dangerous, in a similar manner to the interceptor, I pay it heed because it doesn't cry wolf.
