Take Away:

Don't use it until they fix major problems with false positives and until they stop pubicly displaying your email address!


My advice is don't use this until they fix major problems with false positives and until they stop pubicly displaying your email address!
On PrestwoodBoards this product returns a false positive:
I went to their website to see if I could contact them but the only way is to report a bug. However, when you sign up they warn you that they show your email address publicly so I can't sign up!!! Geez, they are trying to help people concerned with web abuse and THEY ARE DIRECTLY CONTRIBUTING to web abuse by showing your email!!!!
I simply wanted to contact them to figure out if I could do something differently that would not cause a false positive or if they could fix their product.
