Steve,

I don't know what you do about this, but the McAfee web filter classifies the FLPI website as pornography.  I've pasted the text of the message below.  (I'll register for the Ecological Design class later from a different computer.)

Please verify.

Michael,

Could you please confirm if you are using Consumer version or the Enterprise version of McAfee programs.

I'm not using McCafee. A prospective customer cannot access our site because his gov't agency computer or network is using McCafee. The copy of the email message my colleague received is included and describes the situation. I'm hoping that there is some database that has erroneously labeled our site as porn and that this can be corrected.

I have submitted it for review to categorize it as Recreation/Education, but this is available to anyone. You can submit what you feel.

Thanks to all who helped out. Hopefully, now that my site has been recategorized, other will have access. Thank you very much.
