Seems odd to have the most obvious URL for your app be rated as a scam by that very app! The domain doesn't actually seem to be a scam anymore; it's just parked, so it should be available for purchase, right?

Speaking of domains which change owners, is there any mechanism in place to archive or delete old ratings at that point? Would be silly if you bought the domain but it were still rated as a scam!

It is also silly to change the ratings as long as it belongs to a scammer. Furthermore, it is silly to give money to a scammer.

Updated date is fake given as 0000-00-00 on who.is/whois/weboftrust.com
Also, the status is clientTransferProhibited. Could that mean a dispute is underway?
