@all,

All web rep is questionable in a sense, this especially  when you believe all stories spread by main stream propaganda.

I use Avast 's web rep next to DrWeb's URL checker, but then the latter is Saint Petersburg AV Software,
advised by Владимир Владимирович  ;D  ;)
and, oh well, that famous person is frowned upon to-day in the USA.

Oh and I also like Bitdefender's TrafficLight.  Another good link: https://urlscan.io/result/9b551498-6146-488e-b347-8d2b667c4846#summary
Bottomline of the story, only trust what you have checked to be secure yourself.
This means that you need some insight in website security and not a lot of folks have that or have acquired that knowledge.
