    The advice to users to turn off this warning and that it is “generally ok to visit such deceptive website” is TERRIBLE advice. You should not publish articles if you don’t know what you are talking about.

    • Nikhil says:

      In case if you are visiting only know about the data in the site, I don’t find it wrong to visit a deceptive site. The site may be down due to many reasons such as but not limited to scripts, Adware or DOSS attack on the server. Visit it via incognito mode unless the site is something where you need to provide some data or less it is pretty much OK to visit a general content delivery site.
