I run an entirely harmless website which has been given a 'suspicious' rating by WOT. I wrote to WOT asking to hear the evidence on the principle that, in civilized places, one is innocent until proven guilty. I received a polite but unacceptable note saying there was nothing they could do about it. However, I could change my domain or send in proof that my site was friendly. How presumptuous! This is a form of tyranny akin to the old McCarthy anti-communist days. WOT is not alone in this kind of one-sided police state the anti-spam league has declared itself ruler over. An investigation is, I think, overdue.

Web of Trolls.
WOT is one of the worst services available on the web. The sites are evaluated by registered users but without being supervised by WOT administrators.
This means if the reviewer dislikes of content of your site, you cannot do nothing except see you site marked with a red ring.

Gives me a hint on what the French Revolution may have been in its time: innocent victims of the hysteria of the masses.
I will never trust but independent (if available) professionals to guide me in the jungle of the Web, but I am of those who -- to choose -- suffers more from an innocent in jail then from a guilty person in freedom. And with what I've heard of WOT sentences, jail is putting it mildly.
Not for me.

It does not protect at all, all nasties load in the background the moment WOT "hides" the site for you, enabling some protection makes all sites load super slow, i would consider WOT on the nastiest malwares of this moment.

It was great, but due to morons and nervous people almost every page is of great danger so I've removed it and rely on Prevx & Malwarebytes.

gawd21, needs some kind of psychiatric help I fear.

From my experience, WOT did not provide bulletproof safety ratings. Too many false positives and search slowdowns. And it is technically a Spyware(openly disclosed). Every service that gives you real-time information is going to be collecting your personal info and browsing habits. So it is not that unique and since you supposed to read "Terms of use" and disclosures, it is perfectly legal.

A nice addon, even for net-savvy surfers who can generally smell a rat in short order. At the very least it arms you with information you wouldn't have otherwise.

Oh, and GAWD21, you're really shooting for Troll of the Year, ain'tcha? You need to be careful, though..your belligerent drivel constantly crosses the line between "believably stupid" and obvious flamebait. You need to refine your technique (your trolling, not your epic masturbation. You got the latter down pat.)

Oh no, Chicken Little, it's spyware? What shall we do? Oh yeah, that's right, we'll read the privacy policy ourselves and choose not to be idiots. Something you should try.

@gawd21: Chicken Little proven right in the end? Oh, wait... You're talking about that animated Disney movie from a few years back. I was talking about the original fable. LMAO!

Great extension. AMO currently shows this version as beta (i.e. "experimental").
