Question Why Is This Site Turning Up Red on McAfee SiteAdvisor?

http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/pla...pe=FF&aff_id=0

It's probably not much to worry about, but you can never be too sure. I've had problems like this arise on other boards.

I don't know why it would say that, but I don't really think they know what they are talking about either. In it they say that this is a American site which it isn't, and they have no proof (not one review) that there is anything bad on here, just that they say it's bad. I'll end this by saying, didn't McAfee have some kind of problem with there software this year that caused viruses to show up on thousands of computers? If that's so then maybe we shouldn't be trusting what this site says?

Google begs to differ and, lo and behold, actually provides some form of evidence to back up its claims. Long story short, ignore SiteAdvisor. Our server is secure. Long story slightly less short, download Microsoft Security Essentials for free and stop funding McAfee and their inferior, false positive-spewing products.

I already do, and by the looks of the Google claims, McAfee and SiteAdvisor look like they are just full of shit.
