    FaceBook

    This is Greek to me. I find no "learn more" option, just slander about how potentially abusive CF is. This site generally musters a fair representation in on-line battles. Let me know how I can help.

    I got the WOT add-on for Firefox and gave this site great ratings. This whole thing seems a bit strange.

    I'd suggest logical complete thought.

    Yep, what you just said is Greek to me, as well.

    You need to click on a link that routes to CF through Facebook, then it pops up with a "Leaving Facebook..." message saying that CF is potentially dangerous. There's a "Learn More" link there (see attachment if you still can't find it).

    By clicking on the Learn More link, you can see CF's rating and can sign up to their site and increase the reputation.

    Please give us good ratings everybody. This is very weird. I have no clue why we've been blocked but the ratings are getting better the more people vote. Thanks for your help.

    Thanks for this. My Droid often doesn't show all the options - I'll check from my laptop later.

    Do you not remember how many malware, spyware, and virus attacks this site gave people from the ads not too long ago?

    I still get the "There are problems with the security certificate for this site" warning every time I use my Droid. I don't get warnings on my home or work pc.

    The ratings are actually managing to get worse. How the hell?

    I sent in an email earlier, just got a response from the sites that blacklisted CF.

    The site HAD a virus...
    see Cyclone Fanatic malware - Google Search

    However it was removed from this site back in December 2010

    http://mirror1.malwaredomains.com/files/removed-domains-20101227.tx
    So there we go, it was the ad problem CF had awhile back that put it in this position.

    Re: FaceBook

    This site doesnt seem like the kind of thing that should be powering Facebook's whole link-approving, imho. Just because a site had problems at one point in the past, and got ratings for it then, does not mean its links should be blocked permanently.

    At very least facebook should have a button for 'flagged incorrectly?' and probably a link for the domain owner to contact facebook to get their domain removed from the blacklist, not just 'go contact our 3rd party filter'.

    Still not sure why this is happening now though. We haven't had a virus in months. Why do the numbers keep dropping? Strange...
