Forbes (09-Janurary-2021)
“We have always supported diverse points of view being represented on the App Store, but there is no place on our platform for threats of violence and illegal activity,” Apple said … “Parler has not taken adequate measures to address the proliferation of these threats to people’s safety. We have suspended Parler from the App Store until they resolve these issues.”

So I have a question; perhaps @MyWOT-Team could answer ...

Are there any #UnratedSites (having zero user ratings, either anonymous or commented) that are #Categorized as #Unsafe (with corresponding low trust score) by WoT's #MachineLearning (and not so categorized by another algorithm or a human)?

We used to have tons of them (even considering the very small weight of electrons).

Amazon has provided over 100 examples of violent Parler content – including death threats against prominent Democrats, Republicans, and tech executives as well as supporters of Black Lives Matter, – which was not removed for violating Amazon's TOS as well as Parler's TOS:
"This case (suit) is not about suppressing speech or stifling viewpoints. It is not about a conspiracy to restrain trade," Amazon argued in the court filing. "Instead, this case is about Parler's demonstrated unwillingness and inability to remove... content that threatens the public safety, such as by inciting and planning the rape, torture, and assassination of named public officials and private citizens."
Addtionally, Parler users have been tracked during the incident at the Capitol building, using Parler to coordinate their actions:
Gizmodo has mapped nearly 70,000 geo-located Parler posts and on Tuesday isolated hundreds published on January 6 near the Capitol where a mob of pro-Trump supporters had hoped to overturn a democratic election and keep their president in power. . . While Gizmodo’s report doesn’t show how wide-spread the problem was on the site, it certainly shows that that Parler was actively used by people who took place in the attack. It goes into detail about what the mob did, and how the GPS data shows certain moments. . .

There is such a thing as "free speech" but then there is the consequences of having free speech.

It appears the site is no longer tagged as safe, either because user ratings have hit a threshold or due to the "machine learning" unable to scan it at this time.

That said, there are some white supremacist comments at that I have reported to the admins.
