Why not reverse..?

g7w: "if ticked [enabled] would cause WOT to ignore all SA links in search engine result pages"

I agree - but I think this option should be turned on by default.

2 icons would confuse most people, especially if they don't know why it happens.
I was also puzzled initially, so I guess that newbies would be even more lost...

Okay, we've added yet another workaround for SiteAdvisor. The extra rating symbol should be gone once your add-on updates its search rules, or you can right click the toolbar button and select "Check for updates..." to update them immediately (Firefox and IE only). This workaround only applies to the latest version of SiteAdvisor (they keep changing things between releases) and on Firefox it's only been tested using version 3.6, because Firefox 4 beta hangs when I go to Google while SiteAdvisor is installed.

I am having the same problem, as a result of Stumbleupon. There is nothing that states that the first (green) ring is stumble's rating, so if you are unaware that it is, it looks as if the site listed in the search results is trustworthy. I hope this isn't posted elsewhere, I searched and couldn't find this same issue anywhere else in the forum.
Screen shot:

I'm sure WOT is probably aware of this, but I just wanted to make sure.

I'm getting the same thing with WOT icons displaying twice. I'm using McAfee SiteAdvisor and WOT appears to display two ratings rings, one for the search link and one for SiteAdvisor.
Any solution would be greatly appreciated.


Поиск @ Mail.Ru - the same peroblem.

When searching through Mail.Ru search engine, I noticed that each search result displayed with two rings.
