People, didn't you notice the OP has not left any reply yet? From my point of view, someone threw a bone into the courtyard and now the dogs are fighting over it. Let's get back to business and rate websites before this thread starts to become a time-waster full of political opinions and stuff. Just an idea...

Curious. . . Who is fighting.
I personally thought this controversial thread has been done with the utmost respect. Been kind of refreshing in my opinion.
If you are worried about g7w and I don't. We may be a couple old bulls, but think we know that too. We are fine as far as I'm concerned.
Anyhow I'm done.

No, actually it was something else that made me post that.

I've recently seen the same thing happen again and again: some rather inactive account suddenly bumbs into the forum by starting a thread with a rather controversial post saying "ratings are based" or "mywot is political motivated" or "wot is a scam". Next thing you know, people (we) jump in and heated talk goes back and forth. Some threads go North, others far down South. But they all got the same thing in common: the OP never got back to the thread after that single, first post. Meanwhile, I've got the feeling someone's playing us here. And maybe it's not a good idea to jump in... at least not every time.

~shrugs~

I'm not judging the OP... but it just happens to be a fact that this thread fits perfectly as an example to the scheme of other (alike) threads (started by others). After all, I did not yet see the OP come back and reply to anything after he started the initial rant. Did you?

Anyway, never mind if you didn't get what I meant, others did. ~smiles~

PharmacyChecker has 128 posts and has participated in discussions. His site's rating hasn't improved and he's trying again, trying to fully explain his point of view (really,really fully). I don't think he has posted and then stopped reading, but he knows that if he is too quick to jump in with a reply, it could turn into a flame war. I think he's handling the thread the best way possible and it reflects some experience with WOT forums.

But I know what you mean. Some other threads lately have clearly been started by people who have created new identities just to troll the forum. If someone with no previous posts posts an inflammatory OP telling everyone else what's wrong with WOT, I think the best response is just, "You're new. You're misunderstanding how WOT works. Read the wiki and hang around the forums to learn why we don't agree with your post." Hey, what are the trolls going to do, admit they used a previous identity?

And not responding removes a lot of the entertainment value of trolling.

Phew! Having just spent the past forty minutes ploughing through this thread I can only suggest that most of the issues could be resolved by US citizens supporting a proper tax-payer funded health system so that US citizens wouldn't need to buy medications from other countries and/or potentially unsafe websites.
