Interesting.
When I'm asking for help, please explain, in detail, every step. Thank you :).
I have nightmares about computer glitches and bugs.

This Site is listed by McAfee as a red site. Why have site advisor if you dont take heed of their warnings?
Not going there.

The way I read it -

Site Advisor - Albinoblacksheep.com

the "red" warning is only if you are on their email list and regards what some consider Spam but viewing their content is OK.

As JohnWho has shown:

Seems the only issue is getting spammed if you give them your email information. Well Duhhhhhh!!!! :flowers:
Gee a little user common sense and the site is clean. Seems to me that site advisor is doing way too much thinking for the user behind the keyboard. :thumbsup:

No harmful downloads no malware. Seems like a harsh judgement, on the part of site advisor.

I naturally thought red was a risky Site.As you say, seems like Overkill on McAfee's part.
If no harmfull downloads or Malaware you would think McAfee would have better rated it better.
I am probably a little Paranoid about visiting new sites.With the risks out there do you really blame me for being cautious?
I thought I was useing a little common sense,you refered to. :thumbsup:

This is why I say that Site Advisor I feel is doing too much thinking for the user. It reduce all sites to yes or no with zero gray. The WWW is full of gray

If no harmful downloads or Malaware you would think McAfee would have better rated it better.

Couldn't agree more. Give us some 'gray' let the user choose whats safe. One size does NOT fit all.

I am probably a little Paranoid about visiting new sites.With the risks out there do you really blame me for being cautious?

Not at all DSTM. Like my well know moniker Be (insert activity here) Safe, always better to be safe. But not to the point of never leaving the house.

I thought I was using a little common sense,you refered to. :thumbsup:

Sorry I was not directing that comment at anyone. Just saying all users should use discretion and do a little homework themselves to make sure it's not a 'false positive'. Don't let sites think for us all the time.

Best as I can determine is it is from 'The Last of the Mohicans' soundtrack. Either, 'The Kiss' or 'The Elk'. not sure which track.
