IE 8 Suggested Sites

I`ve been trying out the Suggested Sites button in IE 8, and very useful it is too (or so I thought), except that one of the sites it suggested has just triggered an Avast site block and a full-page warning from WOT with reports of phishing, spyware, viruses, scam tactics etc.

I followed this sequence:
Avast 4.8 Home/Pro Forum
E Avast Gold Partner, Avast in Australia
Avast Antivirus Download (this is the rogue one)

It looks as if these sites may not be checked prior to being put into these five suggested sites lists and if I didn`t have Avast already (and WOT), I could well have just downloaded a whole heap of infections.

Does anybody know how to alert Ms that they`re suggesting at least one and probably a lot more dangerous sites with this very convenient button?
