<quote user="donsorg">That is why it raised my concern since there is no masquerading as a trustworthy (assuming known) entity.

RE: mywot no longer recognizes blogspot.it etc.

It keeps showing up as: <code>hxxp://ellieaskswhy.blogspot.de</code> It is particularly odd, as I live in Arizona in the U.S.A., and have not logged on to Gmail or my blogger blog anywhere besides Arizona for the past...
