Sorry, I should have said there - the blocking message is now coming from my anti-virus software, Trend Micro, rather than from Google. So it looks like the false-positive warning percolated through to Trend's systems and hasn't been cleared there. I've clicked on a "Please review that site" button; I hope that Trend will get their act together soon.

It's now behaving just fine for me in both Firefox and Chrome. Hopefully it's done now.

I've asked TrendMicro to look at the site. So far, it's still tripping their stuff.

I'ven been getting through okay, but that may just be Trend taking the hint after I told it firmly once. Sounds like the company are being a bit slow to okay the site.

so then what's going on with the site? it's virus free, but some browsers are being slow to remove the warning?

I'm glad it seems to be back to normal, as the only thing now I risk being infected from here is the liberal agenda (for which I am already well protected from)

The warnings are coming from Google or anti-virus company servers. Those companies will want to confirm that the site is clean before removing the warning. Unfortunately, they can be a bit slow sometimes.

...And indeed, Trend Micro is still causing my PC to block the site. Oh poo. Somebody yell at them. Or threaten to sue them for lost income.

Trivial fix:
• install AdBlock. Fixes all rogue ad servers instantly, and is needed to make most pages readable.
• disable SafeBrowsing/"block reported attack sites"/etc. I've yet to see something there that's not a false positive (assuming ad crap being blocked)
I hate dancing, but for your grave I can make an exception.

The warnings went away for me with the newest strip using ChromeOS on my Chromebook and with Chrome on my Windows desktop.
