Submission + - McAfee SiteAdvisor wanted $2,000/year, I said no, now they're blocking my site

An anonymous reader writes: I don't wish to publicize my site, but McAfee is extorting me. They stuck a sales guy on me last week so I would pay a ton for a 'security scan seal'- $2,000 a year because people 'trust' McAfee. I can't afford it. Today alone, I had 5 customers with McAfee SiteAdvisor call to tell me my site is marked as spyware and their browser won't let them view it. Oh, and my sales are down 50%.

What a coincidence!
