Last I heard the U.S. leads the hack/slash & squat pack of unwanted Spam to malware domains/scams & shams. I have found that IMHO some of the most untrustworthy sites originate in the UK. Close 2nd Canadian Rx's! I have cause to visit the U.K. sites as I was born/raised there, but I don't trust many any more so I get my Brit news thru Yahoo or other (US) servers/filters. Sure they put a Yank spin on many Limey issues that I laugh about but that's just because of cultural disparity from my youthful (poverty-striken) experiences [East-End of London] to my American adult norm$ here in the Pacific NW loving life.
If you, or any WOT patron were to list the top 5 nations for cybery-problems starting with the least trustworthy 1st, what would a list look like from your side that may help others avoid the traps I fell into & the mega-spam I got just by looking up some old school M8's on a domain called Friends Reunited. www.ukfriendsreunited.com/ WOT ? PLEASE DON'T PAY THEM A VISIT unless U use a proxy server or have great spam filtering going 4 U.
Trust me on that one 'K :-(
Just curious.
