    this was on my homepage. FEMA BANNED THIS VIDEO
    My thoughts was ?????? so I clicked on the website www.familysurvivalkit.org

    It is an ad for a 'home study' survival course. Is this for really? Is it something to even consider? :shrug:

    Advertising at it's finest... Say something is banned, and people will want to look... I never do when I see something like that. Also a great way to pick up a virus or malware by clicking links that are listed like that...

    By chance was this your facebook page? They are passing around the Zeus Trojan that steals bank info, but having you click links on facebook pages to rogue web sites... Most are ending in .tk

    I'm pretty sure FEMA doesn't have the authority to ban much of anything in nonemergency situations, let alone some video. I agree with the others, just an advertising gimick to get you to invite a virus in to visit or to pay a lot of money for information available here for free.

    It's just advertising. I get the emails for it all the time.
