RE: Scorecards Reformatted — Don't Panic

I'm confused a bit by (or at least unsure about) the ratings sections with the yes/no answers.

For example, if I go to 'negative' in the ratings and click 'no' for spam, what does that mean?

In my list of sites rated, it comes up as a thumbs down beside spam.

RE: rpgcrossing.com

I don't think that there is a suspicion or evidence that our site in particular has been hacked. We monitor the state of our server and talk to members daily (well, constantly), and there has been no report of problems. See this post by GURBL, who made the 'spam' comment, for what we know of the gro...

The point of this review is to establish in the eyes of WOT that we are a safe site enjoyed by many without issues of spam or inappropriate content. If someone feels the need to "t...

RE: Spammers are hammering a legitimate site's rating!

What is a "commercial site"? This is a member-supported community, and some people pay to use the site. However, it can also be used free of charge. It is staffed by volunteers. It sounds like there is an expectation among some folks that making a community like this available on the web requires co...
