Trend Micro Says is Innocent!

Chris Lang – is innocent of all wrong doing and Trend Micro declares any blocking the result of a false positive

I wrote up all the details of Trend Micro Pc-cillin incorrectly blocking my site on Email Jedi since it really belongs there.

At least it is over and I am much stronger for it. Now it is time to get back to work on something that makes me an income.

Cheers to all that helped me through this: Paul Myers, John McGowan, the Trend Micro investigation team and Boomhauer.

    It’s a good thing to hear they reacted on your writings about blocking your site and changed their false classification. Should also encourage everybody experiencing similar cases to just not take it as is but fight for their rights.

    Thanks Marcus.

    I cannot sue anyone, all I can do is move on. Think of it like this. I sell an eBook. It teaches your competitor how to sell way more product than you. Can you sue me? No. Trend Micro supplies a recommendation of sites security. It is up to the end user what they decide to do.

    That fact that no one, NOT ONE person contacted me to find out if it was true is what really scares me.

    Besides, what can I do when it comes to Google, Microsoft, Yahoo and Trend Micro? They hold all the cards. I have to take my lumps and move on. The fact of the matter is that I need to find some way to make a living because my business is history.

    You are exactly the fifth of my over 4000 social contacts and subscribers that has commented or contacted me. Not a good sign of Internet faith in their fellow man. I thank you for your trust Marcus.

    Tell anyone you can about this so it does not happen to them. If you can link to the posts so that we can inform others of this new filter.

    Right now I just want to move on. This has taken my every waking moment for the last 30 days. I need to focus on getting some new clients and income or I am looking for a job bartending and close to homeless.

    If anyone can refer any email delivery or social marketing consulting clients it would be much appreciated. 480 686 1217 – Chris Lang
