ADSL firewall security breach?

Hi

I use an ADSL wireless Netgear router and have configured the firewall to flag any outbound messages containing key words, one being "credit". A number of credible web sites I have recently visited has resulted in the firewall flagging that the site is requesting traffic with "credit" in it - allow or block? Unless I select "allow", the nag screen remains- am I being paranoid or are there legitimate things going on here?

Any help v welcome

I would say a tad paranoid, un-flag it and enjoy using your computer. In the unlikely event something goes wrong you will survive.
