I like the new look of the forum but I'm currently accessing it on an Android device because McAfee SiteAdviser on my PC is blocking access on the grounds that it is unsafe...

Is there a way to ask McAfee just what about it they consider "unsafe"?

It just says "When we visited the site, we found it exhibited one or more risky behaviors."

Their actual site report says they didn't find any significant problems. The owner needs to leave a comment.

Maybe playing concertina is the risky behavior they're concerned about!

I've had the same problem. Accessing the site itself - no real problems, but as soon as you go to one of the various pages within the site it gives you the "Whoa! Are you sure you want to do that" screen. Friends have advised that they have no problem with the site with their security software from other schemes, so I have overridden the warning screen. Probably would be a good idea for one of the site admins to leave a message on the McAfee site to try and clear this problem up ?

(Strangely enough, McAfee seems to dislike West Country Concertinas now ... maybe it is a concertina related bias!)

The problem seems to have gone away as mysteriously as it appeared.

 

Although I wouldn't expect Cnet to be dangerous, I feel very uneasy about ignoring a warning.

It hasn't gone away here ... McAfee still showing a red warning . I wonder why the difference?
