Socoder -> Off Topic -> Socoder - Force for Evil!!!

When we tested this site we found links to pcriot.com, which we found to be a distributor of downloads some people consider adware, spyware or other potentially unwanted programs.


Thanks to Toaster's links to his own homepage, McAfee's SiteAdvisor sticks a great big giant "NO GO!!!" icon on Socoder.
*sigh*
Typical!

My initial reaction when I saw the red SiteAdvisor bar was ARGGGGHHHH! but it seems to be just a website that hosts other websites... Annoying though, because I've trained myself to avoid that red bar like the plague!

I added SoCoder to my Do Not Warn list.

I've never used SiteAdvisor, so what's the deal exactly? Did someone post a link to pcriot and that's why its advising against this site?

This should have been a news item.

I was in two minds whether to make it news, or just plain scrap the news section..

In other news, Syntax Bomb (at least for me) appears to be down.

@Instinct: link

It's a neat FireFox (or IE) extension that marks any bad websites in Google search results and displays a small bar in the bottom status bar which is either Red, Green or Yellow depending on the website you visit.

Between this and sticking to mainly open-source downloads, I felt no need for my anti-virus software!

Wonder what happened to SyntaxBomb?

Note to SyntaxBomb users : Socoder might be pure evil with big red x's, but feel free to make use of it in the meantime.

Yesterday Qube was testing a Windows server. Today he is either testing again or actually switching to one


Or something like that...

Because it's stupid...

I just need to tell you not to read my comment unless you want to get mad at me and probably ban me...
