I will make this short and sweet, as I've written enough about it: 1. I had previous trouble with SiteAdvisor over a false positive on a freeware utility I authored. The RED rating persisted months after the false positive was fixed (on their end by Avertlabs, their R&D arm). 2. I was contacted a couple years (approx) later by a salesperson for Mcafee Secure. They wanted me to buy certification for thousands a year. I didn't have that kind of money, but knew their power. I didn't mention the previous problem, and so told her 'maybe next month'. 3. She makes a strange request that I email her to confirm the conversation (get domain name for sure?) 4. A month later they try to call and I don't answer. She emails. I say I don't have enough money. 5. THE NEXT DAY their highest ranking (in post count and 9/9) reviewer bot with over 2 million site reviews (1000+ average a day) comes and reviews my site saying only I have malicious content and such, giving no specific example because there is NONE. I have NO OTHER negative comments since the first incident, which a mistaken reviewer later recanted (a long freaking time). 6. I remain GREEN, thanks to my previous false positive (ironically) 7. They call back again, last chance opportunity .. The price is now 1/4 of what it was originally. I decline and we both say 'oh darn'. Does this sound strange? A bit extortionist, or is that just coincidence? They may make me RED now as I've expressed my concerns publicly. It just upsets me because I remember how I was hurt before, and know others are being hurt.. meanwhile those who can 'pay up' can do whatever they want, so long as it isn't detected as malware (several examples of that.. e.g. FreeCreditReport.com, check them vs on Web of Trust). I would have went RED and had to 'pay up' their insanely high prices. Some would call this extortion I think. I dunno, maybe I am jumping to conclusions.. but why allow reviewer bots? And I could see salespeople, eager for commission, independently pulling this off. I was given a specific email address, and always talked to the same person.
