If they get a report, the automated system scans. the automated system has to get at least 1 hit somewhere for the site to get blacklisted.

As long as they refuse to release their criteria for determining badware, though, it's anyone's guess why. Their admitted false positive rate is nearly one in four, and a huge number of their supposedly "confirmed" positives are cleared by McAfee, who themselves have a terrible false alarm rate.

Probably an ad script somewhere, though. 4 pages out of 90 hit, 0 consistent (meaning on a second check none of the four came positive).
