WOT? REALLY????????

I'm so tired of these kinds of posts, really..

If someone disagree to your point of view, he MUST be wrong, communist, terrorist and manipulative.

I'm sure you and others rate liberal sites the same way as they do with conservative sites. But that's ok, right?

But theres a difference: The liberals don't complain and don't cry that much!

Don't understand me wrong:
It's stupid to rate sites just because you DISAGREE or AGREE to a certain political point of view.;) Right??

and a response to your post (OP) would do what. . . .
Life is what it is, cast your votes as you wish and others I assure you are doing as they wish. 50 million see things as they are in my opinion. Sorry they don't all have the same thoughts as you desire. . . yet life is as it is.
Maybe time for you to ponder your opinion some.

WOT is based on trust so, if a you don't trust a particular site, religion, political party etc, then where is the wrong in rating it accordingly?

It is down the the visitor to make up their own mind based on their level of trust and then add to the existing ratings/comments.

Current site ratings are an indicator of the level of trust given by thiose that rated. It may not be right according to your points of view but it's based on the views of many more to give a general opinion.

WOT's constant liberal activism is showing more and more! Sites are rated according to their political views.
@ O.P. : Nice oneliner !
~smile~ You must be a politician, they make such overdone statements.

<quote user="snrek">WOT's constant liberal activism is showing more and more! Sites are rated according to their political views.[/quote]

The problem here, snerk, is that you seem to think the only opinions that are valid are those espoused by Americans...more specifically, Conservative Americans. (I looked at your scorecard comments). Not only are Conservatives becoming a minority in the US, they are a tiny group when you look at the Western world. And it's people from around the world who rate sites here at WOT. The world is what's more "liberal" (unless we're talking Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, etc.)...maybe humanity as a whole is "growing up" and accepting that all deserve equal rights, all religious (and non-religious) views are subjective tho meaningful to the individual and thus equally valid, science is a good thing, and the best thing we can do is be loving in our words and actions, even to people who disagree with us. Live and let live.

WOT ratings are about trust. While American Conservatives may trust sites that claim the bible is the "one true way", "gays are immoral", "evolution and climate change are fake", "the Christian God Jesus is coming back", "natural disasters/bad things occur because one of the Christian deities (Jesus/Satan) caused them", etc., most of the Westernized World trusts those sites about as much as they trust sites that say "Allah is the one true God and all must worship Him or be destroyed", "women should be covered from head to toe and escorted by a man if they leave the house", etc., and sites that proclaim things like "this natural diet plan, which we will sell to you for only $99.00 USD, will magically cure your cancer!". In short, most people don't seem to trust American Conservative sites at all.

It's not "liberal activism". It's reality. The world is a big place, and the USA is just one part of it, with about 5% of the world's population. Conservative Americans are an even smaller group. A minority within a minority.

I get cross when I see political sites being marked down because of a difference of opinion. If you live in a democratic country then there must be free debate. In most cases trying to shut down an opponents point of view is simply because you have a weak argument in the first place.

AGREE WITH OP.

While it isn't strictly limited to liberals, any website right-of-center displays a substantially larger amount of wrongfully-negative rating than any on the left.

While I fully agree with the second and third sentences of your post (I FIRMLY believe free speech is necessary for a truly free society) WOT doesn't "shut down" sites...it just shows how the majority of people feel about the site. Think of Westboro Baptist's ratings for their hate site. https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/godhatesfags.com

Yet their site is still active, and they have every right to spew their garbage. No one is stopping them, nor should anyone try. But others also have the right to express how they feel about this site. Same goes for political sites. If I don't trust the viewpoint of a political site because I think the ideas put forth by the site are harmful to society (for me, that would be sites related to Romney) then I'm going to rate that site red. Remember, WOT is not an anti-virus program like Kaspersky, nor a blacklist of malicious sites. It's about trust, and to tell people they should rate a site "trustworthy" "reliable" and "safe for kids" simply because it is free of malware is akin to censoring people who do not feel the site is trustworthy because they believe the ideas it espouses are insane.
