re:How do I know how I stack up to others?

At the moment, there is no way for users to know how much our system places trust on their testimonies. However, we do have plans to make this information available to registered users at some point.

Hi Melanie,<br /> <br /> We do not require our users to register, so only ~1% of them have created an account on our website.

re:Company firewall interfering?

When you install WOT, it essentially becomes a part of the Firefox browser and therefore, uses the same proxy server you have configured in Firefox options.
