McAfee site advisor being used to attack Atheist Nexus

My McAfee site advisor bar turned yellow when I visited Atheist Nexus. I was not surprised. Groups against atheism typically will take any opportunity to attack using technology rather than participating in a debate they know they will lose.

McAfee site advisor reports that this site presents "potential suspicious behavior." which is another example of "groupspeak" or generalized innuendo as a form of vilification or marginalization.

Since I have a Site Adviser account with McAfee, I can log in and sit in judgement of other sites, but I dont because I'm a strict advocate of free speech.

Don't be paranoid. Leave this type of persecution delusion to the ones that are good at it - the theists.

These web alerts are heuristic best guesses. In themselves they are meaningless. Ning uses a lot of cross-site scripting and i-frames. That in itself will trigger an alert on any firewall set on high protection. Exactly the same thing occurred last year with Netcraft.

The rational thing to do (you are rational aren't you ?) is report the alert to McAfee as a false positive and let them look into it.
