Thread starter #1
Over a month ago (around September 9th or 10th I think), I found that I was suddenly unable to visit this site. I kept trying daily for weeks. Then today, I found the cause of the problem. My McAfee firewall had blocked this site specifically (and not any others I visit), saying it was a risky connection. When I found my NetGuard settings and deleted the entry, I tried visiting and it again blocked it, saying it's a risky connection. I had to manually set this site to "allow" before I could visit. I'm not sure what the problem is, but you may want to look into it, because other people using McAfee could be unable to access your site as well. Just thought I'd let you know.

Hmm, that is strange. At first I thought you were talking about McAfee site advisor which is the program that usually blocks websites for people but that usually shows you a warning instead of simply making it unavailable like it does when the firewall blocks it.

As you can see here, site advisor hasn't rated us yet: http://www.siteadvisor.ca/sites/nintendorealm.com
