StopBadware.org replies

Yesterday I received an email from stopbadware.org. They reviewed my site and found no problems anymore:

Google’s most recent test of your website found no badware behaviors on the site.  As such, the Google warning page for your site has either already been removed or should be removed shortly.  In addition, if your site has been listed in our Badware Website Clearinghouse, we will remove your site from the Clearinghouse list.

So far so good, a bit late maybe since my site has been unblocked since about a week. However the last paragraph of the email reads:

Please note that we will be retesting your website at periodic intervals in order to monitor that it remains free from badware. If we find that you are hosting or distributing badware in the future, the reviews process may take considerably longer than the original review.

Now this really made me laugh. The next review process might take even longer? Due to the lack of information provided by stopbadware.org and Google, my site has been marked as a badware site for approximately 2 and half weeks. It took stopbadware.org another week to review my site, after Google found it was clean. But when I get hacked again, it even might take them longer to respond than they already needed?

Considering the cooperation between firefox and stopbadware.org I might have to switch to Opera, or god help me, even Internet Explorer.
