It might just be me, but I have clicked the false positive button incorrectly/mistakenly at least twice now and have no quick way of saying ..'Sorry, ignore that!'

If the false positive report button could switch to a 'Cancel' button would that help atomiccorp / anyone else?

I've done exactly the same thing too :-(. Yes, I think it would be a good idea.

Thats a very thoughtful idea. We certainly would appreciate knowing if you send in an FP accidentally. Right now the way the system works makes a cancel feature actually a little involved (its sort of one way), but I'll add it into the feature list as we could certainly use this feature ourselves.

In the mean time, just shoot us an email if you send something accidentally. We dont mind even if you don't because we do some hard eyeballing on every report just to make sure - after you're paying us to be the security experts so we always doublecheck to make sure it really should be a false positive. :-)
