Re: rating problems

I've also noticed that when I attempt to give a site the lowest possible rating, the color tag always shows up as "yellow" (suspicious).
Is there a reason why this is occurring?

Bogus Twitter Accounts Are Getting More Scrutiny

Since WOT also addresses sites that sell social media accounts, I thought this article is of interest. I think more effort in securing social media accounts is long overdue.

Another news source that should be rated as suspicious: fortune.com This site appears to editorialize news so as to favor a political bias, in this case, Donald Trump. Example: fortune.com/2017/02/28/lg-electronics-us-factory/ Fortune writes: LG Is Building a New U.S. Factory After Trump Criticism y...

Re: MRT?

The Mass Rating Tool seems to have currently disappeared.
Is this a bug or a design point?
