    Was wondering that, we've started a heavy audit on such things here as a result and making more use of Impero for it. But still, was rather expecting that thread to be moved to BTRD.

    Indeed. A post needs to go up asap to explain stuff, so other visitors know what's going on - further info could be added later.

    Just to clarify, the thread disappearing doesnt mean its gone for good or deleted, when we have a serious concern raised we will remove the whole thread until the relevant concerns are resolved.
    Like I said earlier please just hold on, we are going as quickly as possible.

    Oh thanks, so now we are all in the dark? I thought this site was here for this exact reason.

    Well done......

    FN-GM it is the way of this world that sometimes things happen for reasons that cannot be made public at the time, sometimes ever. This is not an insult to you personally, any member of the site or anyone else for that matter.

    The admins have spotted something untoward and, while they investigate, the thread has been removed from public view. It can be restored, if appropriate, once investigation is complete. ZeroHour has explained this and that they will comment further. Until that time we all have to be patient.

    You seem to demand a full explanation every time something happens and sometimes this is not possible... not just on edugeek but anywhere in life.

    @elsiegee40 i am sure you will agree this is an urgent matter to resolve. Edugeek have now removed the resources that will help to address this serious issue. Edugeek was here to help us, all its done by removing it has made things harder.

    No I don't agree actually. It hasn't been gone weeks. Just a short length of time.

    Chucking your toys out of the pram achieves nothing. Like I said, sometimes it is necessary and this is one of them. Be patient; the admins are working as fast as they can.

    My fault this was removed: I asked Shaun to do this, and I can tell you it was NOT for commercial reasons, it was to protect you, and to protect edugeek.

    FWIW, the google/https issues are discussed in a number of threads, and a mitigation for the "interesting" searches is in the latest blocklist, so hopefully little "new" useful info is lost.

    Seems it's Google's fault anyway - the images are in safesearch.
    I've reported to Google and suggest others do too. (feedback button at the bottom of the page)
