    I tried looking for a thread that covered this to no avail...

    Anyway, I have Growl installed and whenever I open Safari, it notifies me this:

    Growl is an application for displaying system-wide notifications. It allows different apps to display messages when an event occurs, e.g. when a download completes, when a buddy goes online, etc. To adjust your Growl preferences, go to System Preferences -> Growl (it will be in the "Other" section). To stop Growl from displaying any Safari notifications, go to the Applications tab in the Growl preference pane and uncheck Safari.

    If you want to uninstall Growl completely, refer to the Removing Growl page.

    Hi, yup, I know what Im getting into when I installed Growl :D

    ...but the thing is, I have no Washington Post entries or anything related to a Washington Post installed in my Mac. Im not subscribed that newspaper (I assume it's a newspaper...) and I have never visited any site with a Washington Post entry. It just suddenly appeared...

    Got my Mac around 4 months ago and I installed Growl so I can get the notifications. However, as soon as I opened Safari (after installing Growl), that thing came out. It has no relevance to me, it isnt connected to any other app I installed. It bugged me for weeks...

    Do you have the Washington Post RSS feed bookmarked? It might be one of the default bookmarked RSS feeds. That's what it looks like. Use the search in Safari's bookmarks page to find it.
