Why?
is someone mining usernames and passwords here?

The server pro.imagehost.biz at pro.imagehost.biz requires a username and password.

Warning: This server is requesting that your username and password be sent in an insecure manner (basic authentication without a secure connection).

That's because user "Robert J" used an img link to a pic on their site, but their site requires a username and password to access it, so when it the browser tries to load the pic, it's prompted for username and password.

The offending link is in this post.

Perhaps a mod can delete the post?

I wish to appologise to anyone who was inconvienenced by my post in the milestone thread.

I did post an image link using a plugin (smilies) for firefox. Many others use the same plugin on these forums as well.

Appearantly the server that had the particular image I used has had some changes that require a sign in.

Once again, I am sorry that my post caused anyone concern.
