I was wondering around the web today and came across a nice article about Norton classifying AVFM as a hate group then blocking the site.  The comment section is most interesting.

It seems that word is getting out about MRA issues.

That's what the "there's no bad press" saying means: Symantec's action provided the spark for a discussion. I would be very surprised if Symantec's "classification" remains unchanged.
The spreading of information about the [quantum] system through the [classical] environment is ultimately responsible for the emergence of "objective reality."

According to the article the block has now been removed without any comment by Norton/Symantec.  If you have a chance to read the comments, this really made my day.  The vast majority of the comments were positive and the one or two naysayers were quickly shot down.  It's nice to see that MRA's are so positively viewed on a pretty mainstream website (even if it is a techie site).

Sure. And when will my site be blocked by Norton? Do I have to wait forever?  :sad2:

Just kidding. Doubt anyone would complain much.  :greener:

I would be very curious to know what prompted them to do this to begin with.  Who were the people involved and how was the decision made?  Thanks goodness they revesred their decision.  The irony seems to be that it was Symantec that was hateful not the site.  :greener:

 Good to see avfm branded as a hate site.

Low life two faced Elam knows no boundaries when it comes to screwing others to get what he wants and in order to please his kitten's.

AVFM branded chris key's site as a hate site and it ended up being shut down.

Elam is not the only one at AVfM who has to wear this label.   There are many others there as well.  Are you willing to let them be unfairly branded?  Do you hate everyone there?
