Hello,

I would like to request you remove the site gooofull.com from your list. Recently I found WOT and checking Gooofull's reputation I saw it's blacklisted by you (I didn't know hpHosts either) since 2009 because the site was engaged in walware distribution (!!).

Gooofull is a download site and it hosts thousands of files. A year ago I started using Webmaster Tools and discovered that about 50 files were considered being malware by Google. I removed them and the site is clean since then.

It seems Gooofull has been blacklisted for 4 years. I don't exactly how has it influenced the number of visitors, but I would like it was removed from your list since the site definitely isn't "engaged in walware distribution".

Please let me know if there is something in the site that you think needs to be improved to be removed from your list.

Thanks you very much for your consideration.

I beg to differ I'm afraid, this most certainly is not an F/P. As I mentioned in the reply to your e-mail;

Francisco,
Thank you for your e-mail.

There's actually a few reasons for the listing in hpHosts, one of which you've already mentioned, the others being;

1. Bundling adware in your installers without notifying users
2. [1] + redirecting to downloads at d.free2nstllr.com (site known for malicious content, and one of many on the same IP as free2nsttllr.com engaged in the same behaviour)
3. Bundling security software with [1] without authorization from vendors (this alone is absolutely abhorrent)

hey steven :)

for what it is worth, i found that "s7d2.scene7.com" was blocking some of the graphics at "www.rr.com" :

http://www.rr.com/

thanks :)

update: i also found that some images at "www.shopping.hp.com" are hosted at "s7d2.scene7.com".. if you click the "zoom" button, to enlarge the images of the products, those "zoomed" images are hosted at "s7d2.scene7.com"..

i noticed that "intensedebate.com" was used for posting comments at "informationclearinghouse.info", so i would think that it is legitimate..

here is one webpage, for example, at "informationclearinghouse.info", where "intensedebate.com" is used for posting comments about the article:

Sorry for taking so long.

The site was listed due to URLs to the site being spamvertised to countless forums etc. e.g.;

intensedebate.com/people/nitrofuraneni

Been trying to get hold of the sites owners since I first noticed it, and added it until I could get hold of them.
