Two skeptic blogs: reasonablehank, and Losing In The Lucky Country have been targeted by an anti-vax–motivated censorship. The method, making false reports to the Trend Micro as containing spam and malware, causing users of this service to be blocked unless they are willing to risk ignoring the service’s warning.
Reasonablehank alleges that the trouble was caused by Liz Hempel (@SAVNGodComplex, although her Twitter account is now suspended). For more information, check out reasonablehank’s blog on the subject, which contains a transcript of the related Twitter conversation.
Thankfully, Trend Micro has co-operated, and both websites have now been re-rated as safe in Trend Micro Security Center.
