Here is proof that McAfee http://www.McAfee.com/ is bullying me to use their software. These are screen shots from my computer showing that I can not comment in defense of myself unless I put their code on my website. I have tried to call that company, leave comments on the post about my website, and numerous other attempts to get this straightened out.
McAfee is spreading negative comments and turning away traffic from the Toil the Soil website and it is false advertising and blackmail. See the above message I get when I try to comment to their negative review. Here is the link to the review.
The most recent commentor to the thread about my website says that I am the second owner of http://toilthesoil.com/ and that the first owner was the problem. I looked up the whois database and didn’t see that–but maybe someone can help me out to verify that.
Anyway—the negative review of my website is still up and McAfee will not let me comment on it unless I insert their code on my site. So regardless of who owned Toil the Soil before, I can’t comment unless I use their code. Is this bullying? Well a lot of people have emailed me to say ==yes..it is.
Don’t you think this is illegal? In my opinion—they are hoping that fear will motivate me to follow their desire to advertise on my site.
They not only require that I use the code in my root directory—but they also want me to display their button on my site–for everyone to see that I’ve been approved.
Does this irritate anyone else?
My screen shots tell it all. I have lost so much due to this false review. I’ve been working on this website for over 2 years and on opening day my potential subscribers were turned away by McAfee. McAfee has not responded to my request to set this straight.
Some of my gardening friends have signed up at McAfee so they can vouch for me. This problem is costing me money. I don’t think McAfee cares.
