It may depend on your browser, but the 'blocked' message usually offers an option to proceed anyway. I'm not in contact with BD but must assume he is in contact with WordPress.
While sites like WP, LiveJournal etc tend to have stronger security than your usual private hosting companies, they're also extremely popular. It could just be that they're not responding very quickly, but I can only guess that. Maybe lots of other WP users are having similar problems.
Funnily enough, my phpBB forum was flagged up as unsafe by Norton (and ONLY Norton) some years ago. I can't seem to do anything about it, even though the forum is 100% clean. Replies:
