BROUGHT TO YOU BY SNOWWOWL.COM-NON-COMMERCIAL NATIVE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL WEBSITE MAC AFEE'S FINAL WORD ON THE SNOWWOWL.COM RATING
June 17, 2008
MacAfee has stated unequivocally, that the only way they will even re-test the snowwowl.com website, to maybe change its "Unsafe" red warning, is IF ALL EMAIL ADDRESSES ARE REMOVED FROM THE SITE.
If we did this it would mean that we would have to remove the following email addresses:
ALL email addresses from those that have contributed to the site and have their email address listed so that those that want to comment or write to the author of the article can do so.
ALL email addresses in the Flash news articles. Both those giving contact information for those involved in the issues, as well as emails to write to to complain or to do something about the situation.
ALL email addresses on the Powwow calendar page. Meaning that only Powwows with websites, would be able to let people electronically contact them for more information.
ALL email addresses in the GuestBook. Meaning that if you made a comment asking for information or for help, no one would have your address to answer you.
This would in effect shut down the snowwowl.com website as a source of exchanging Native American information.
We will live with the "unsafe" rating, rather than close down the site.
At the same time, you who are reading this article can do something.
Speak up loud and clear. Let everyone you know, know what Yahoo and Mac Afee are doing. What they are requiring one site to do now, and who knows how many tomorrow.
If they are allowed to go on with their fraudulent activities now, when will they stop.
Mac Afee wants us to give up our right for an open exchange in order to get a good rating from them. As stated before, there are other websites on this server with the same exact forms and GuestBook etc. They have supposedly been tested and are "green". They do not have to remove their email addresses. However, the two Native American non-commercial websites do have to remove the email addresses.
If anyone knows of how we can get some help with this situation, please email email@example.com.
We are NOT going silent into the good night!
