Now don't get me wrong, I think the Norton Safe Browsing, with the popup box to say suspicious website blocked is a good idea.
However, I sometimes come across the situation where this is infuriating as for some reason, it can happen when I am working on my development server and testing changes to my websites.
OK, so I can continue to the page anyway, but sometimes I find that the data I had entered into a form (or maybe the cookie set by the code when the form is submitted successfully) just doesn't work.
Maybe we need a means of being able to add site wide exceptions to the Safe Browsing, rather than just being able to click on 'Go to this page anyway'.

As per your post I understand its a Suspicious page block - It is a part of Norton Antiphishing.
(Malicious block page is part of Safeweb and there is user setting to Not block them)
Suspicious page blocks appear only for phish suspect pages. Adding exceptions is not allowed since that way the user is vulnerable. Can you please check if the page you are accessing has any phish content?

I know the page has no phishing content, as I created the page...
The problem may be linked to the fact that some of my pages use listings generated by the ebay partner program - for example:
I wonder if this could be seen as potential phishing, although the links are all to ebay?
There are plenty of sites which use the ebay partner program to generate listings - presumably they are each checked by Norton?
