RE: New Zero-Day Exploit in IE8

Here are my two cent - I don't trust any version of IE. Every version has had major security flaws. Thanks to the browser and the OS being written by the same company and tightly coupled your entire system is exposed. Having said that, all browsers have security flaws and once exploited the attacker...

RE: How to improve Ranking for my all websites

It is very simple - run a quality web site that offers goods or services that people want, respect their privacy (i.e. don't sell their information, don't spam or blast them with email), keep it all child friendly, and if you make a mistake own up to it and fix it. In other words use common sense. C...

RE: Attn: US voters - Internet sales tax

Most states with a sales tax already have a what is called a Use Tax which tax due on items purchased out of state for use within the state. This includes on-line purchases but also covers purchases made by driving across the border to a lower tax (or tax free) state. The states have a hard time col...

RE: Can WOT really be trusted?

I think the person who started this question is confusing the concept of "trust" with "agreement" or "consensus". You need to remember that the scores are made up of several individual scores. Some of those people are likely to agree with a given site and some are likely to disagree with a given sit...

How soon after visiting / using a new site do you score it?

This may make a good poll question; how soon after visiting or using a new site do you provide WOT scores for that site? Ideally everyone only provides scores on site they are familiar with, not every site they visited. I generally wait a month or so for a any site that requires registration because...

RE: An unhappy site owner started an email campaign against WOT

Much easier to attack someone else that improve your site or business practices. That is one the many problems the world faces today - someone offends you, get even; especially in the digital realm where they never see the other person face-to-face. If there site is really as bad as those who scored...

RE: WOT miss used as "I don't agree with the website's ideas"

There is always a risk that tools like WOT will be used by those with strong opinions or agendas to inflate or devalue a given sites scores. That is unfortunate. It would nice if everyone was honest and "professional" about their scores. Just because I disagree with a site doesn't mean they have inc...
