I accidentally searched MacRumors instead of hitting the URL and noticed that Google is flagging the site with "This site may be hacked".

Yes, Google is being oversensitive in flagging us for some reason, and we have not been hacked. We made a couple tweaks and submitted for them to re-review, but apparently it can take weeks, which makes no sense to me. Really hope it gets looked at sooner than that. :)

Maybe it is the same reason why Dolphin does not find the main site.

It's interesting use of grammar. I suppose they mean "may have been hacked" but it reads like a sarcastic if inadvertent invitation to give it a shot! If the former, why not give MR a friendly heads up regarding detail of what they have determined.

Anyway thanks to the MacRumors admins for having a look and making any adjustments that seemed wise.
