Good question!

My software offers me an explanation for why a site is flagged. When I followed the link, I got the report below, which basically says that there's nothing wrong with us. Weird.

I would say it's safe to come here. False positives unfortunately happen more often than website owners would like. All it takes is for one poster to hotlink a picture from another domain that has been listed to contain malware, and sometimes they will add this domain, too. It's annoying as hell.

There are even a few posts that are skipped right over...

Multiple members (including myself)...some with pics, some without...No rhyme or reason whatsoever...

Google is a malicious website. Search for something with Google and you will see ads for what you searched for pop up. Try it.
