This company sends spam! Many clients of WOT has written negative comments and they warn and WOT gives a level of GREEN = good - Why? Only why they have sell a sign?

Look at this side: https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/mailchimp.com?utm_source=addon&utm_content=warn-viewsc

Its will been time, that WOT change urgend their reputation system! This can not been, that companies they pay for a reputation, to get a good level, but has a absolute bad reputation and other companies get a bad level expl. red or yellow without comments!

Regards

Detlef

Mailchimp is not a spam sender, but rather reliable email sender. If you get spam with links to mailchimp, you should report such emails to Mailchimp and they will take care of the sender.

Also there is no such thing in WOT as paying for reputation.

When I wrote
"Spammed me"
It's because I got spammed and I moved it to the spam bin!
Is beiing over 3 years and now is when you bring this spam to our attention
As far as last year, your site was listed for Advert
"11/30/2013 hpHosts Used for advert or tracking purposes."
Is not longer listed
Also from your site
"We send more than 434 million emails every day, and we help our customers comply with spam laws and best practices so they can get their campaigns into their subscribers' inboxes"
."In the course of providing the Services, we may collect Personal Information, which means information about a Member."
If you are the owner or represent this company, the consensus here is that this site is not trusted as you allow by accident or design spam to be send
Attacking WOT because, the site is not able or willing to stop the spammer, is simply absurd
Thank you

I agree -well said friend.

[*]How MailChimp prevents and combats abuse

We have a team of human reviewers, who approve new MailChimp accounts and detect abuse within our system. Our staff uses a variety of criteria to evaluate accounts, ranging from the obvious WHOIS and IP information, to some not–so–obvious behavioral patterns. We require all users to agree to our Terms of Use before setting up a MailChimp account, and again before importing any existing customer lists into their accounts. Our abuse-prevention initiative, Omnivore, keeps our system clean by predicting bad behavior in campaigns before they even get out the door. We offer customizable signup forms for customers who are starting from scratch with MailChimp and don't have a list of customers to import. These signup forms only use the double opt–in method, which keeps prank signups out and stores opt–in proof for every subscriber (like IP address and date/time stamps). We automatically insert a one–click unsubscribe link in every campaign sent from our system.

All lists managed in MailChimp are automatically cleaned of soft bounces on the fifth campaign attempt, and hard or undeliverable bounces are cleaned instantly.
[*]How we educate customers
We keep our users updated on the latest best practices, tips, and email etiquette with our blog and customer newsletters.
Our guides help users learn their way around MailChimp and email marketing in general. Throughout MailChimp’s user interface (when sending campaigns, setting up lists, and designing templates), we provide customers with links and background information to help them understand email etiquette and spam laws.

As I wrote - which apparently so many felt it easy to disagree with my experience - mailchimp will take action *IF* you notify them of the infraction. I thought they were irresponsible until they demonstrated otherwise.

Mailchimp is one of the best, hands down.
