Some customers (not all) of Kaspersky Anti-Virus Labs have received warning alerts when they visited Maggie’s Notebook. All of the alerts were false, nevertheless, I am now officially released from Virus Hell. I am not a phishing site (obviously) – which they have claimed. Kaspersky forced me to delete my Feedburner account as well as replace my harmless little Gravatar, the Liberty Bell. This has gone on for months, and has obviously affected my traffic. As I’ve said before, this proud Conservative suspects a conspiracy – not from Kaspersky itself, but from Liberals who hate the First Amendment when applied to anyone not of their own Liberal leaning. Here’s the email I received this morning from Kaspersky, a Russian company:
This site was removed from our bases.

Readers, if you get a warning on a blog site you are familiar with, from any virus or malicious code detecting software program, notifying the blogger is a very nice thing to do. It allows us to do our own necessary checks and then to fight back. In the meantime, traffic is fleeing and there is little we can do but try to get our message of innocence out into the blogsphere, while we wait for something good to happen. Today, something good happened for me. Thanks to everyone who gave me a heads up, and thanks to all of those who hit the “ignore button” and visited anyway.
