Don't go to his site. He was probably banned for either spreading viruses or spamming for software protection. Block him, check your pc, and come back.
A moderator will pick up on this later and explain further.

Admin will respond with instructions but I would say don't do anything with it. Sounds similar of what other members have seen. I believe that link will download a virus to your computer.

Gee, Dianna, I was kinda looking for an incantation, a curse, and colored smoke. A little more flair.
