hpHosts has been and continues to be, an excellent project that I love being a part of, and although I'm glad that others find it useful, there's a certain segment that I would like to address. Given I don't know who these particular people are, I evidently can't contact them any other way, so figured a blog post would be best.

I do not recommend SiteAdvisor, Web of Trust nor Norton SafeWeb but I do use Browser Defenderâ„¢

:arrow: SiteAdvisor is hopelessly outdated and even rates sites with known malware as safe. :mrgreen:

:arrow: Web of Trust has too many subjective ratings from people that have personal bias against things. :lol:

:arrow: Norton SafeWeb is OK but I would never use anything from Symantec. 8-)

Thanks for the info :D

I have used CallingID in the past. Not bad but like the others is prone to showing incorrect information.
