RE: Rumour, Gossip and Fake News Sites

This website's primary focus is Holocaust denial and hate-mongering, and promotes fake news in general: <red>thetruthseeker.co.uk</red>. I have rated it <red>red</red>. Five out of the six score card comments are deep red, yet the website has an overall deep green rating on WOT. <strong>EDIT</strong...

RE: Rumour, Gossip and Fake News Sites

<quote user="A440"> "Site-rater" My evaluation was based upon feedback from families with autistic children, who are highly critical of this site due to their classification of autism as being a "disease" instead of a condition. I went back and discovered that some of the complaints came from a sour...

RE: Wikipedia "was" completely rewritten to say WOT doesn't exis

Things have worked out as I was afraid they would. In less than 24 hours after I made my edits to the WOT article in Wikipedia, large sections of the original article (pre-2016!) were removed because they were supposedly unsourced, see here hxxps://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=WOT_Services&typ...

RE: Wikipedia "was" completely rewritten to say WOT doesn't exis

I re-wrote the WOT article in Wikipedia, to indicate that the add-on had been reinstated in browser add-on stores. I revised the first two paragraphs so that they would be in the present tense. I also cleaned up the article for grammar and repetitive mentions of the sale of user data to third-partie...

<quote user="Site-rater">... The "WOT_Services" page is semi-protected, but the POV content in the headline is still standing. Also, perhaps someone could fill in the blanks regarding WOT Firefox for instance? Perhaps they could cite the forum? https://www.mywot.com/en/forum/76764-community-update-w...

RE: New blog template

I recommend that the WOT blog admin checks current posts for comments more frequently. Even comments without links are held for moderation, often for a long time.

The Internet of Insecure Things
