This website used to be classified as "Medium Risk" because it was un-categorized by the WebWasher service. This means that everytime someone wants to view one of the pages on this site, they have to bypass a warning message. Luckily, one of my readers informed me of this (Thanks Phil), otherwise I would have never known about it.

Having your website classified improperly can significantly reduce your traffic during business hours.

In order to check what your website is classified as, go to and check. If you don't agree with your classification, you can submit a re-classification request and someone will take a look at it for you.

Making sure your website is classified properly is your responsibility, don't assume anyone is going to do it for you.
