Gaming websites; Siteadvisor rating should be re-evaluated

Good afternoon everyone,


     I have noticed when visiting quite a few gaming websites, SiteAdvisor gives a green rating, despite the fact that when I click to read the security report, it clearly states the site is known for phishing, malware and/or other scams.


This would seem to be a contradiction in the SiteAdvisor rating system which should be re-evaluated.  How can a gaming website with known phishing/malware, or other security issues be given a green (safe) rating?


Thank you for your time and review of my inquiry!

    Can you provide two or three examples of these sites? Better give them in the form "gamingsite dot com" just to be safe.


    And if they're suspect in any way I hope that you have Windows, McAfee and your browser all up to date when you go there, and have security in your browser cranked up high. Again, just to be safe.
