Pro version.

I think a Pro version is a good idea. But it would be difficult to find a balance - leaving enough with the standard version so it's still useful, while providing something totally new and improved to pro users - for example adult site blocking. People pay for stuff like NetNanny or CyberSitter (or ...

True enough, one of the

True enough, one of the differences I've noticed between WOT and SiteAdvisor, is that WOT takes a more holistic view of trustworthiness whereas SiteAdviser just focuses on major problems and technical safety. On SiteAdvisor, both Scientology.org, xenu.net are rated green, and for example hateful web...

card-rohlinge.de

Since I started using WOT instead of SiteAdvisor, I am having a lot fewer "What the F***" moments when I see a site rating that makes no sense. However, I just had one with WOT today. And what makes this even more weird is that the rating of the site in question appears to have changed radically in ...

What is the OPs problem?

The purpose of WOT is to advise people about the technical safety of websites and their trustworthiness, i.e. viruses, browser hijacks, scams etc. Everything else should be green.

I suggest some tweaks.

Greetings from a former SiteAdvisor! I used to use SiteAdvisor, where I did reviews which you can see here: http://user.siteadvisor.com/forums/member.php?u=56553 I've dumped SA in favour of WOT because it's considerably more accurate (I have found a lot fewer ratings errors in WOT versus SiteAdvisor...
