I just clicked on the Sponsored Links YOU MAY LIKE Can Meryl Streep Handle New Rumors Surfacing Around Her? and my Norton anti-virus warned me that the site was known to contain viruses and would not link me to the supposed story. When I tried to repeat it I see that the sponsored links can change and the Meryl Streep link is not always there. I would examine that link to make sure it's OK and why it is triggering Norton. No other sponsor link that I tried triggered the warning.

    Thanks for raising the alert about this ad.
    Have you seen it since? Sometimes other people/sites catch it and it gets removed from the rotation upstream, so to speak.
