False Positive for "spammy emails"

I'm really upset right now--I have a food blog and one of my readers notified me that she had stopped visiting because SiteAdvisor was giving her a warning when she tried to view my blog. When I looked it up myself, I found this:

I really have no idea how it was decided that I send out spammy emails; the only email form I have on my blog is for my Feedburner RSS feed which is NOT SPAMMY. I don't sell anything on my blog--I don't even have AdSense ads in my emails! I send out about 5 emails a week, simply because they go out when I post something. There are millions of other blogs that do the same thing--are they all listed as spammy too? Again, I have a food blog. What could I possibly get out of spamming my readers?!

The most frustrating part about this is that I see you will only change this rating after 60 days. I'm sorry, but that's just not right--you gave me a false positive and now I have to wait two months for you to correct it? And potentially lose readers and traffic in the meantime?
