Perfect Optimizer

Post by Guest » Sat Jun 12, 2010 8:31 pm

Just looking around and thought I would check out this site.WOT top members had by and large rated it red as a rouge.In the past two days there have been many new members rating this site up.It has over two thousand greens for it now.I know comments are not ratings but some newb might be drawn in by all these positive comments being agreed to.Very suspiciously though in the past two days.All red comments have been voted down.To go to this much effort would make you think that they are fairly well organized.
Perhaps we could rate them down again to balance things up.I rated every red comment by WOT members up.And every green comment done in the past two days down.
For anyone interested here is the scorecard link.

When I visit the scorecard, I see that comment votes have been disabled for the site.

Errr, that's called rating abuse. Have you actually bothered to check the website and the software it offers (FYI: I have), as the statement you've made, suggests you're basing your ratings purely on what others have said.

If anyone is curious, the site had lots of recent comments that seem to have originated from spammers in China and the US. Here are the other domains involved in the spammy action this time:

activepcoptimizer.com
boostersonpc.com
fixmum.com
perfectoptimizer.com
registrymum.com
windowsclear.com

It might be interesting to investigate what exactly are these sites are selling and who owns them.

There's another interesting thing too. Roughly half of the spam accounts were created from the US netblock 65.49.2.0/24, which has been allocated to a company called Sophidea, Inc. There's hardly any information about the company on the web, but this is not the first spam indicent we've seen from this address block.

Soon after IObit had been accused of stealing data, for example, fake users from this netblock spent weeks spamming good comments for iobit.com and bad comments for malwarebytes.org, apparently in a foolish attempt to change the reputations. Coincidence? I think not.

So what's going on here...? Are these spammers for hire, a bunch of open proxy servers, or what?

Rating Abuse

Post by Guest » Sun Jun 13, 2010 7:14 am

I think when a lot of new members rate a site up in the period of two days its one,very fishy and two rating abuse.I have never seen a couple of thousand positive greens on even the best sites.
Also there were a lot of references to blacklists by top members.If you have to go to every rouge site to check it out,even though top rater's give their sources is a bit of a waste of time IMHO.A lot of these rater's that use these lists do not check out each site.BTW I do not have the mass rating tool and am not interested in it.But they often post a list of bad sites for others to rate.Are these Top Rater's Wrong also.

That looks like the standard IIS welcome page. Microsoft owns iis.net and it has nothing to do with the other sites.
