<quote user="crioux">... the hell ...[/quote]... may boil down to this: Several of the people who favor these sites could not be bothered to [url=https://www.mywot.com/en/support/tour t=_blank]Read The Fine Manual[/url] on how to actually rate the sites.

This applies to all the comments marked "I haven't rated". Comments (and bulleted categories such as "Good site") have no effect on the trust score/color.

<quote user="crioux">... immoral ...[/quote]... is in the eye of the beholder.

Both sides of the fence should at least agree that planned threats against human welfare are, in some fashion, immoral. The two sides simply disagree on the definition of the threat. This is not the place to take up their debate; but because this is a contentious issue, expect it to be a moral one.

If you don't want to be told how to express yourself, kindly return the favor.

Finally, some sense!

As Myxt said, this is definitely not the place for a CC discussion, just as it's not the place for religion, politics etc.

One thing about the down-rating of these sites is that there has been a concentrated effort by a user with a vested interest to down rate sites, specifically anti-wind sites.

The user Mike Barnard with a core team of volunteers (hxxps://www.mywot.com/en/user/3665098/comments) have been very active in downrating sites. Mike Barnard has been a pro-wind advocate, employed by IBM for Smart Grids.

He had a blog (hxxps://barnardonwind.wordpress.com/) which has now been removed at the request from IBM after several complaints of cyber harassment and bullying was upheld against him;
Mike Barnard last month was taken to task by researcher Jackie Rovensky of AU and NA-PAW (North American Platform Against Wind Power) for a long-standing series of malicious attacks on trusted and respected professionals worldwide, who have variously documented and researched the now widely recognized devastating effects of industrial wind on human health.
Ref: hxxp://www.na-paw.org/pr-141212.php

Although Mike was more concerned with anti-wind sites, some of these sites he down-rated do crossover into questioning the theory of AGW, and the tactics he employed were less than desirable and multi-faceted, such as down-rating sites via WOT, online stalking and online attacks via his own site and other sites that promoted an anti-wind stance, threatening behaviour towards professionals, etc.

I do agree with other posters that this is not the place for CC, politics or religion, but we must be aware that there is users that will try and down-rate sites to further their own ends.
