Let me disable it please.

It's already annoying the hell out of me.

Just make a rather obnoxious warning that you have to read before you can disable it, saying that if someone gets phished, it's not PBN's fault.

Almost got phished because of that.

Some phisher hid an external link, but linked it as pbnation/aeighag245 or whatever, and I believed him.

Good thing I was smart, and changed all my passwords asap.

When I'm looking at like 10 links, I open them all in new tabs, then have to go through them all and do that, yes, it gets rather annoying.

It is when you have to do it 20,000 times a day.

Should be able to be switched off in the CP.

Just have warnings like Supra said, "it is strongly recommended you leave this on, etc"

It's annoying for more experienced users who have already educated themselves on phishing evasion. It's really rather easy to avoid, given some common sense is involved.

That is annoying.... Really annoying... (as all my links link to off PBN websites) But I do recognize the attempt behind it. way to step it up.

Could you make a way to disable it? I find it rather annoying.

its not that bad.

You don't see any add's? How did you do in math if you couldn't see addition problems?


adblock is win by the way

^^^Yah That!^^^

This feels more like control than oversight to me. If it's disableable I would feel much better about it.
