    The diagnostic page didn't work but I can make an educated guess.  I reckon that convincing them it is not a dangerous site is going to be difficult, it really is.  Migrating the Show and Tell and Hot Technology forums was a Really Bad Idea.  Even worse than not giving moderators rights to every forum on this site.  Good luck finding some to clean up that mess.
