Re: Online Shopping Scams

I've looked and I find nothing overtly problematic. If you look here: https://onlinegymstoreau.com/privacy-policy-2/ we find that they state that the site is owned by Elite Fitness Group and their site mentions being based in "QLD" which turns up this: Fitness Depot Australia Pty Ltd Which has filed...

Re: mrkiddie.com

Hello and welcome to WOT.

For the record, I found some elements of your site to be obviously fake, thus I can not rate your site to highly.
I won't make recommendations because it's not my role to advise people how avoid looking suspicious.

Disinformation and the Big Business It Has Become

re: mywot.com problem

I must reluctantly concur with you here "site-rater". WOT has shown some atypical ratings from the "machine learning" which do seem to favor sites which clearly have serious problems with fraud/illegal activity, etc., not to mention promoting political, medical and social disinformation. Either the ...

trendsresearch.com – Anything for $

This site makes the claim that it is a "world leader in trend forecasting" yet fails to provide proofs of this, all while promoting pseudosicene and egreious claims that link back to their own site, which can not be viewed unless one pays money! trendsresearch.com For just one example of the false i...

georgianbayfishing.com - fraudulent online store, ahem . . .

This domain appears to have a fraudulent online store parked on it as of 12/15/2020. This site is off-line and returns a 403 error code only but it turns out that it is using geo blocking. The site looks as if it is running outdated wordpress and is hacked. Side note: I have a big problem with usin...

newswithviews.com — It has a bit of everything that's bad

This site embodies extreme bias, consistent promotion of propaganda/conspiracies, poor or no sourcing to credible information, a complete lack of transparency and/or is fake news. newswithviews.com News with Views mostly publ...

Re: yuh.com

Hello and welcome to WOT. Your site appears to be free of exploits, has a privacy policy in place and the SSL rating is good "B". You need to revise the WOT description of your site as well as send a PM to the two high level commenters who reviewed this site eight years back and ask them to reapprai...

Re: mdpi.com — retracted but not before being spread around

This terrible excuse for a science journal has retracted this bogus publication. As far as I'm concerned, they are still untrustworthy since it took the ire of the science community to push them to undo what should never have been done in the first place. https://www.factcheck.org/2021/07/scicheck-f...

Americanthinker.com – Addendum 03

Americanthinker.com has yet again descended into presenting rumour as factual evidence in a recent attempt to claim fraud in the 2020 election quoting both Donald Trump and Epochtimes — both of which have serious problems with facts and truth: www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/07/arizona_state_senat...
