Hi again. Its beena while since I was last here but I thought you should know that you've been assigned a "RED" status by SiteAdvisor.

If you don't know its a service that automatically checks where a site links to and allows users to complain about a site. Users have a plugin for their browser and if they can see the safety of a site when they're googling for it or when they're on it.

Its pretty great but they've hauled you up on a red status because you link to a site called which also has a red status because they give out adware.

I have left a positive comment against the site but I suggest you urgently stop linking to webattack because they are doing your site no favours. To most people a red site is one to keep away from. Being a user of your software, I know much better.

You can see the status of your site from here:

And webattacks:

Its important to remember that its not *why* they have a red status, just that they *do*. If it shows a big red cross next to your name in google, that's not going to win any customers over and chances are they're not going to check to see why you're marked as a red site.

Thanks for the posting. Yes it appears that a reciprocal link back to a site that gave our older Spider Writer product an award was the only reason we have the red status. It's quite ridiculous.

We removed the link and sent SiteAdvisor and email to request a rescan since I don't see a way to request one on their site.

Thanks for the heads up... hopefully they will rescan it soon.
