    Post what have i stumbled on,am i about to be terminated?

    hi,i am new to the internet and computers.can anyone offer likely explanations to the following.in trying to get the homepage address of a u.k. television channel E4,i entered the name into the google search engine.i then clicked on to an entry which contained a mass of numbers with E4 highlighted.it seemed to be some form of message board,referring to meetings and events,without saying what exactly.i then clicked on to a link,and a message came up "strictly prohibited" "YOU MUST NOT ATTEMPT TO ACCESS THIS AGAIN",(their capital letters,not mine).so.does anyone have any ideas as to what this all means?.many thanks in advance of any replies.

    Welcome, cly!

    Sounds like you just accidentally stumbled in to a limited-access site. No big deal.

    You are in no danger of being 'terminated' -- figuratively speaking, anyway.
