<quote user="issviews"> I would like to see WOT hit 3.5 - 4 stars[/quote]\

I completely agree. Although I haven't done an evaluation, I'd guess that technically, the addon may deserve even better.

No, "affidabile" stands for trustworthy.

I can't believe these flying hate campaigns were multiplied, even at Site Advisor? What's next? Whining WOT at New York Times? :/

<quote user="tdk_cd-ing!">https://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/mywot.com/msgpage[/quote]But look at the reputation scores of the bogus "raters" - typically 0/9 on each.

This has been ongoing by the same individual for quite sometime; re: https://www.mywot.com/forum/4072-bad-guys-go-nuts-on-siteadvisor

You'll find the same type of reviews on NSW: http://safeweb.norton.com/reviews?url=mywot.com

Both SiteAdvisor and Safe Web have shutdown sock-puppet (or duplicate) accounts in the past when the deceitful activities were brought to their attention. (Although neither has listened to me.) In some countries, it may be illegal to use false information to obtain new accounts on sites where one has been expelled. That's obviously what a few of WOT's detractors have been doing, though.

These scoundrels sometimes libel WOT community members as a means of intimidation. One of them, whom some suspect to be a private detective, occasionally refers to a prominent community member as "a convicted felon in Ohio". The same liar falsely claimed that I was being sued for libel. Long after a lawsuit in Florida against WOT was summarily thrown out of federal court, one of the scoundrels continues to imply that WOT lost the case.

Funny though. Those scoundrels have minimal web presence and zero reputation as global defenders of Internet safety.
Private Defective? Or just jealous of the coveted title, "Convicted Felon".

Private Detective! Rofl. I somehow doubt this and believe the guy is a dreamer. If he/she ever is/was in that line of work then it's certain (imo) they are not getting any work and are passing their time engaging in these useless attacks against WOT. I would agree with Myst that the perpetrator is probably a convicted felon who does not have the brains to work out that what he/she is doing is getting them nowhere.

Hey Guys, Check this out with his/her reviews of WOT:

I can't believe he/she mentions (or "blames") some usernames like Kraftwerk, DestinationTruth, NotBuyingIt, SuperHero58 and others, for his/her hate reviews of MyWOT.

Gee and I thought I was that nice one around here. . . . Hey you guys quit laughing so hard! I am nice.

It is remarkable the way that the Internet exposes minority views and opinions to the scrutiny of the majority, and it is even more remarkable that there are still people using the Internet who haven't come to terms with the majority not sharing their minority views.
