To our readers: FOTM has the safest rating from McAfee

Some of readers have reported to this blog that they are experiencing two problems when they get on Fellowship of the Minds:

  • A pop-up warning saying that FOTM is a dangerous site.
  • Very slow uploading speed.

I don’t doubt that there is an effort to sabotage FOTM.

Our readers should know this:

Fellowship of the Minds is not a dangerous site. McAfee has examined FOTM and determined it to be safe. In fact, we have the best “threat assessment” rating that McAfee gives: A green-colored rating for “minimal risk”. Here’s a screenshot from McAfee (click to enlarge):

You can verify it for yourself by going here.

And so, if you get a pop-up “dangerous site” warning when you access FOTM, either ignore it or consider switching to a different browser.

To test this, I used three browsers — Firefox, Chrome, Opera — to access FOTM‘s front page, and the results are:

  • No pop-ups with all three browsers.
  • No slow speed with Firefox and Chrome.

Thank you for your patience and for being such loyal readers of FOTM.

God bless you!

Update (Jan. 13, 2018):

Google Chrome is censoring conservative sites by attaching “reviewed claims” to 6 of the top 20 conservative sites. By contrast, none of the top 20 liberal sites had “reviewed claims.” Instead, three of them — The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The New Yorker — had “awards” displayed where “reviewed claims” would have been.

  2. I’m sure we are known by our enemies. Let us stand in the full armor of God, and turn our enemies’ knowledge of us into a dread of us.

  3. Indeed, this site is a danger to libtards everywhere, and should come with a pop-up flashing warning: “DANGER: THIS SITE CONTAINS FREE SPEECH”
    [No, I have not had any difficulty with it].

    The problem is we have haters within word press who work against its own paying customers. If we publish a blog which is controversial they will not allow it to be seen by invoking a page that states, “PAGE CANNOT BE DISPLAYED” -which happened to me yesterday. We have to understand the tech companies have a lot of foreigners who are working for the dark government under the HB visas – that is our problem – plain and simple. No exaggeration here..

    • kommonsentsjane . . . . thanks for the explanation, it really gripes me when I see an article that I would very much like to view . . . try to go to that page only to see a “PAGE CANNOT BE DISPLAYED” sign. I had never given thought to the fact that yes, indeed there are many, many foreigners working for tech companies and as IT specialists. I have little doubt that they want to limit the information that is available to each and every one of us.

  5. I have not experienced any set backs. I have no doubt at all this is a secure site managed by trustworthy conservatives, and God fearing people.

    • Alma . . . . thanks for expressing exactly what the majority of us think and feel. Several times, I did get the “this is not a safe site,” I didn’t even question for a nano-second, I just by-passed that message and went into the FOTM site.

  8. Oh, I can assure everyone anywhere that FOTM most definitely IS a “dangerous site!” As the banner states, “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
    Yes, FOTM is a “dangerous site”: It is dangerous to the New World Order and its minions! As St. Michael the Archangel is the site’s guardian angel (at least I hope it is!) it is a dangerous site to Satan!
    FOTM poses an existential threat to the Mainstream, Lamestream Media!
    FOTM poses an existential threat to the moral dry rot and corruption of the Clintons and the Obamas!
    FOTM poses an existential threat to the sexual guerillas who would sexualize our children—after they have denigrated all the men and women!

    Yes, Indeed: FOTM is a dangerous site. And for once, I think we can actually agree with Thomas Jefferson—no Christian believer, he—that WE at FOTM most definitely do “Stand upon the Altar of God and swear Eternal Hostility to every form of tyranny over the Mind of Man!”

    Keep up the great work, Dr. E!

    • Steven . . . Thank you for adding that quote from Jefferson, I had not seen it before. It certainly says all one needs to know! I certainly do agree that FOTM is a dangerous site, because if a normal person starts viewing this site, and if they have anything approaching to intelligence–how can they not be convinced of the truth?

  9. For a couple of years I too suffered thru slow slow downloads with lots of scripting going on. I always used Explorer. Then I tried Firefox; end of problem. Super fast.

    • Roy . . . . I use both Explorer, and Firefox, I can certainly say for sure that Explorer is down a huge part of the time. Then I turn to Firefox. I guess I should just use Firefox right out of the gate, but someone at Netflix said that Explorer was better for streaming video.

  10. I encountered a problem a couple hours or so ago. The processes tree indicated firefox was using over 2 million in CPU memory usage, or whatever that number means. I am an ignoramus of Computers, but that was very unusual in how it played. The task manager also refused to end said processes easily, a sure sign something was wrong.

  11. I had these problem along with being told by google i have virus’ or “won” a prize from amazon, not just here but a few other sites. Only starts happening after mutiple visits to a site (all right “wing” blogs). I downloaded Brave with an ad blocker. No more issues from google or winning an amazon gift cards.

  14. As someone who has some small experience with “off-brand” browsers, I’d offer some suggestions for anyone’s consideration: Iron (if you want a chrome browser that is more secure, allegedly, although it still does connections to google sites for some reason) its from srware.net/en/, if you want something that is internet explorer oriented try Sleipnir (sleipnir 2 for if you want IE like it was in the ‘0#’s to 2012) its from fenrir-inc.com, flashpeak makes some like Slimbrowser which is like internet explorer, and Slimjet which is like chrome, and also Slimboat which is their “safari”-type and they’re at slimbrowser.net & slimjet.com/slimboat/en/ Although the “slim” products might be considered outdated, since their websites haven’t changed much since 2015, however just because something is old, that doesn’t make it inferior, after all. (The slims also have a lot of integration stuff, for facebook etc. that makes me a bit leery.) There is another firefoxish type called pale moon, its from palemoon.org.

    I also know of one browser which says it runs all three major “engines” (trident, gecko, and webkit) and seems to have been inspired by opera, its called “Avant” from avantbrowser.com. All these ones are free by the way, but as with anything anyone ever suggests online, scan their installers with your anti-virus/anti-malware programs, and virustotal.com, try to download them from the official sites, because places like CNET modify the program installers to contain their own adware garbage. The one I use is K-Meleon by the way, but its since been retooled, if anyone wants it, its from kmeleonbrowser.org. I have made sure to not have these be clickable hyperlinks because that would be rude.

    I leave it up to Dr. Eowyn to keep or axe this comment, I don’t work for any of the groups involved here, I’m just someone who prefers to not use stuff that is mainstream, if it can be helped, (because they’re usually backdoored or subversive in some way, etc.) and likes to share what I’ve found.

    Watch out for comodo’s browsers by the way, while they are very privacy-oriented they take away end-user control of some things, like automatic updates, and that’s a Huge No-No for me. I have a friend that used icedragon and it was ridiculous how much effort had to be put into locking it down just ot get it to behave proper, and the automatic updates effectively deleted all of her bookmarks in the process etc. a very rude thing indeed.

  15. No, that was useful info afaik, Seumas. I tried Palemoon, may try some others eventually. I know I despise the new Firefox and consider it intentionally harder to navigate through its options, just like Edge.

  16. I use McAfee and Sandboxie on my desktop tower and my two laptops are both Chromebooks (and their malware protection is automatic), and I have never had any issues with weird notifications popping up when logging onto FotM on any of those machines.

    LOL – Can’t say the same for some other places I have swerved into, but that’s a story for another day.

    But then, I ran Autocad for over 25 years and have been surfing the net since the Usenet days, and I just don’t get all that panicked if I see a strange message or two.

    Just keep your malware software current with updates and you should be okay, but it might be a good idea to set a restore point every week, just in case.

    Don’t go web surfing without protection, as that would be surfing naked.

  17. I went to a chromebook quite some time ago, and have not had near the trouble that I did with my old windows machine. But that machine was on it’s last legs. For what I am doing right now, the Chrome book is fine.

    • I love my HP desktop tower, but my two Chromebooks are my go-to machines for every day net stuff I do around the house and away from it, as well.

      People can gripe about Google and their politics all they want, but until somebody comes up with something better, faster, easier, and safer than a Chromebook, I will keep using them as my preferred laptop.
