I’ve had a response from Pat Bitton (Head of Global Communications) at AVG, who I emailed earlier following their comment on The Register.
…we’ve been working since then to
figure out exactly was going on and how we might fix it with the best
results for everyone. Your offer to assist is much appreciated, and I’m
copying this reply to Roger Thompson* so he and his team can contact you
So, it looks like we’re getting somewhere and hopefully this’ll mean a change to the way LinkScanner operates to keep webmasters and site owners happy.
