    One of my machines with a product I am alpha testing (HTML scanner) gives me a HTML warning at this website; (NOT a malicious site)

    http://www.mackinaw-city.com/reviews/

    I was wondering if anyone shows anything on any other products? So far I have found NOTHING on the site that would indicate any warnings whatsoever, and no other products are giving me warnings.

    I just wanted some backup before sending in a false alert report.

    Thanks in advance.

    What sort of warning did it give? Kind of difficult to advise without knowing this. ;)

    The only thing I can see that could be the slightest concern is a link to an image hosted elsewhere (US Chamber of Commerce in this case) where the link includes an affiliate (member) ID.

    Phishing alert is what I got, perhaps related to the affliate ID handoff or something eh?

    For phishing, it's probably the use of an image from a "financial" site that is the trigger rather than any affiliate ID - but this case is clearly a legitimate one.
