The last couple of days while visiting the site, the page has been getting redirected to another page and my virus protection has been catching them.  Is anyone else seeing this ?

No, no problems here. I am running Seamonkey browser in MS Windows on couple computers.  I post so many messages that one computer just couldn't handle the load.   :D  Actually, I'm a bot, but only few members here suspect that.  8)

No problems here.  Win7 Ultimate SP1, Chrome browser.  Also Amazon Fire HD tablet and Samsung Galaxy S7 with Chrome browser.  All no redirects.

Likely to be a bad advertisement doing that.  Every now and again the hyper-vigilant filters at work will block a page because of something in an ad link (not that it tells me what the link is).

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

Make matters worse, my hard drive took a flying leap tonight.  Now I'm back to my Windows Vista desktop until I can get my other one into shop for repair.
