RE: User update from WOT

I was contacted by a friend in Switzerland who does InfoSec for a living. He told me about the German media investigation, but suggested I check Wikipedia first. I am an editor on Wikipedia, so I visited the WOT services article. There is a new section there, under the heading "Privacy Concerns". I ...

RE: Thanking Timo

Timo!
Thank you. I love using, and contributing to mywot. I will miss you. I wish you luck, and other notable accomplishments in the future, maybe to rival WOT one day, or maybe surpass it. Again, thank you for your fine work.

* I miss Sami a lot. He was almost synonymous to WOT for me.
