malware detected on member page

so if you go check out the first page of the D section of the member list in google chrome, it instantly redirects you to a bright red page that says:
Warning: Visiting this site may harm your computer!
The website at forums.penny-arcade.com contains elements from the site nashvillemagicclub.com, which appears to host malware – software that can hurt your computer or otherwise operate without your consent. Just visiting a site that contains malware can infect your computer.

I figured it was some weird thing with someone's avatar and clicked through to let me view the page anyway

now, however, I've got a bizarre thing happening to my browser where I appear to have downloaded some bizarre htaccess hack (question mark?) or something that redirects me to myspace every time I try to go to facebook.

this is not really the most tragic error in the world or anything, but just a heads up, I think there's something fishy in the D's

    No doubt someone has an image hosted on a site that's been tagged as linked to malware distribution.

    If I recall correctly alphamonkey had this issue himself at one point.

    Unfortunately it's not happening for me in Firefox so I can't tell which account is causing the problem

    I wouldn't click on this link if you don't have to.

    The url of his avatar is [DONT CLINK]http://www.nashvillemagicclub.com/John_Pyka.jpg[/DONT CLICK] WHICH I WOULDN'T CLICK BECAUSE IT MIGHT BE HARMFUL.
