Why is Breitbart green?

Сообщение Site-rater » Сб сен 01, 2018 5:06 pm

Breitbart.com is well known for hateful and false news articles, however it is currently rated 4/5 stars (aka green on Classic WOT 3.0).
Advertisers are blocking ad buys to the domain in increasing numbers, due to the hateful articles posted.

Considering the amount of disinformation on that site, it should be rated far less trustworthy.

Consider the following as a reason for why the site should be rated down:

Etcetera, etcetera . . .

Breitbart peddles rumour, lies, gossip and deliberate disinformation for the sake of politics and money.

P.S. This site has serious problems with reproducing an intact URL without parsing it. This is a big problem.

Did you try replacing https:// with hxxps:// ?

it says they have "45 million unique monthly visitors". The editor thinks this means they have a "45 million-person community"; but visitors are often unique because they peek once and then don't return. Be that as it may, Brietbart is probably rated massively; and so a red-shift would require the efforts of several Plutonium-level members.

Still rated Safe, still spouting lies, still hosted by Google Project Shield (which is a free DDOS protection service), for which I cannot find an abuse contact.

Yes I did. The WOT site does not seem to handle URLs very well if they are over a certain length.

I would point out to any concerned WOT administrators, this site still being listed as safe (green) is one big reason I no longer really participate in rating sites here in WOT. It is obvious that my efforts, and those of others, are in vain.

Ratings are ineffectual and are too easily manipulated and there is certainly no "star chamber" to rectify this problem either.

Users continue to rate it green due to the abusive content on the site. Kind of like how The Pirate Bay is rated green because it's so easy to download pirated movies.
