The [url=https://www.mywot.com/wiki/API#Categories t=_self]API wiki[/url] article, created by Sami, shows the child safety descriptions as falling within one of three category groups--spaced line between three groups--yet a website's reputation scorecard shows all child safety Descriptions in all three categories.

In addition
the section: [url=https://www.mywot.com/wiki/API#Third-party_blacklists t=_self]Third-party blacklists[/url]
If a website is included in a third-party blacklist and it's possible that this blacklisting affects its reputation, the API will return information about the type of blacklist the site was found in, and when the site was last added there. Here are the current blacklist types:
Blacklist type: - Description
malware: - Site is blacklisted for hosting malware.
phishing: - Site is blacklisted for hosting a phishing page.
scam: - Site is blacklisted for hosting a scam (e.g. a rogue pharmacy).


Blacklist type: spam appears to be "missing"
Yet Jowein and SURBL are both trusted sources which [url=https://www.mywot.com/wiki/Trusted_Sources#Spam t=_self]report a site as being spam[/url]
Here's an example: scorecard: [url=https://www.mywot.com/scorecard/viagradrugpharmacy.com t=_self]viagradrugpharmacy.com[/url]

It depends on your child safety rating which child safety categories are shown in the category selector. Although the same child safety categories are shown in every category selector section afterwards, this doesn't mean the child safety categories wouldn't in reality be grouped as described in the API documentation.

@c۞g You're right, the spam blacklist type was missing, and it's now added there. Thanks!
