biblegateway.com was listed on Norton’s safeweb yesterday as a malicious site. We added it to the blocklist.
I received an email asking to reconsider as the site does not contain malware. I rechecked nortons safeweb, and linkscanner, and the site appears clean. The site was immediately removed from the blocklist.
I received another email, asking me if it was some kind of “sick joke”, and included the following:
I am not sure this was some sort of display of trickery to infringe on my right to free speech and religious freedom… But it certainly does seem to have an anti-Christian agenda to it.
Trickery? infringement on free speech and religious freedom? Anti-christian agenda?
I started this list as a another tool in the fight against malware. This kind of email makes me wonder if it is worth it.
This project is a volunteer non-for-profit project. We have no wish to list a site unfairly. Although every effort is made to ensure the list is error free, mistakes can and will occur. We do not want to list anything that should not be listed. This list is not intended to block ad serving, or any other legitimate activity. It’s intent is to help network operators and others to identify and stop malware infections.This list comes with no guarantees. We all have other full-time jobs. This is a completely volunteer effort as part of the fight against malware.The average time between asking for a site to be delisted and the site actually being delisted (if warranted) is less than 24 hours.
Threatening legal action, threatening to start legal proceedings, accusing us of being “anti-christain” and trickery to infringe on someone’s right to free speech and religious freedom will result in a much longer delay in getting a site removed.
Please keep it professional and don’t make accusations.
