One thought on “PC Pitstop Newsletter December 2008

  1. This’s only place found to make any comments on 12/12/o8 “Special Offers” —WOT thru firefox rates your Morpheus Software link as an immediate red flag, stated it as dangerous site just clicking on it out of this newsletter.
    Second, another WOT red circle is openly visible next to a networking company logo you’re advertising at far bottom left corner. I didn’t check if other “Special Offers” listed been found problematic by WOT, finding 2 so quickly was disappointing enuf. WOT is equivalent to McAfee Site Advisor.
    Uncool.
