TPFC was down for the whole of yesterday
While the thread regards the hosting company (I think it was called vp.stink.com) it mentions what I would term a malicious false positive poster.
Also please remember I was mixing freeware and websites (RE: FalsePositives), since TPFC was taken down because it was linked to a software tool hosted on another site.
While I will never give vp.stink.com a dime if I can avoid it, they were not singularly at fault.
their (vp.stink.com) idiotic dumber than a rock policy, and concurrent decision was based on a FALSE POSITIVE.
@ I am Baas
The website you mention does not seek to in any serious effective way curb awful behavior.
While attempting to report false positives is great, reporting on the false positive reporters is at least as important.
The website needs to rate Software, and other Reporting.
A good rating scheme could be 10= few false positive reports quickly addressed, to 1= many positive false reports never addressed.
I would never use a service, or software rated below 8, instead I would pay up to 3 times as much for a good service or product. (8= several false positive reports quickly addressed)
A good companion site could sell services and software via click through from a ratings page.
It could also send notices as too much time passed before a false positive report was addressed.
(In addition to copies of the false positive reports themselves)
Such notices might start to get their attention once ratings started affecting sales.
And the good software companies would then pay for the right to be added to a click through sales link.
