"This is censorship in the worst way!"
McAffee has 'blacklisted' sites by branding them RED, and under the red X, McAffee has cleared the same sites by downloading the site's content, checking it and labeling it SAFE! They use RED X to show on sites, when there they suppose adware is in the site's advertising banners, which the webmaster has no control over. Google and Freeze run many ads that contain ad on programs, such as google tool bar and McAffee considers this to have adware. McAffee itself, has an this ad on to google's tool bar that they want you to download to push their blacklisted sites as bad and advertise their name. These sites are penalized for merely having ads to support the FREE content they provide visitors. Soon all free sites will be pushed from the web by these big companies and only 'For Sale' stuff will be available to download. This service they provide is more of a promotion of McAffee as a 'protector' of surfers, which is contridictory to what their findings are of each site. If you find a red site, please read the ACTUAL findings whether adware has been found on the site or not, rather than in just their advertising.
