Request: Apparent F/P's

An email came in whilst I was sleeping, reporting as an F/P, and indeed, it was.

However, along with this, was the following tidbit;

"The amount of false positives here is just sad, every time something is broken I know instantly where to look at. You should try to up the quality control a bit."

Unfortunately however, the person reporting it, didn't actually leave a usable return address I could respond to.

I've seen things like this however, for quite some time now and one thing always strikes me - those mentioning things such as the above, rarely if ever, actually expand on this or indeed, contact me, to advise what these "lots of false positives" actually are. As such, I've got a request - CONTACT ME AND TELL ME!

I don't bite, I'm not going to shout at or ignore you. hpHosts is a COMMUNITY HOSTS file, which means YOU have input too. I do my best to ensure F/P's don't slip through the net, and when they are (I make mistakes too), they are dealt with quickly.

I'm easy to reach, so if you believe a listing in hpHosts is indeed an F/P, CONTACT ME! - you can do so at;
