More than a minor problem Rated 1 out of 5 stars
After my first review (below) I received a scathing email from WOT. As in the response to the review they are basically telling me to go to their forum (and do not post negative reviews here) and start a thread which undoubtedly they would jump on just as they have from all of the negative reviews on this add on review page. Take a look, for some reason it seems, everyone is wrong but WOT. Why is that? Basically its telling me they do not want a negative review shown to the public. They do not want to be exposed. I have seen good known government pages blacklisted, good software pages blacklisted and others. All the public has to do is surf and you'll find addresses that are known to be good. Yes most are bad that are blacklisted however in no way should they have to go to WOT for a Mother May I to be reprieved. Like those who have tried to expose the truth in these pages, Firefox needs to get rid of this add on. And no WOT, I do not need another nasty email.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20111107.1-signed). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
We have never sent you email and I believe our response to your previous review was perfectly appropriate. Please allow me to repeat it for those who didn't see it the last time:
We tell you how much other people trust websites and don't discriminate based on race or ethnicity. Reputations are not permanent, they can change. If you are upset about a specific website's reputation, please start a thread about it on our forum. If you are the site owner, follow the "Click here if you own this site" link on the scorecard to claim the site, respond to comments, and request a review on the forum.
Also, please allow me to add that we don't actually set the reputations, they are based on user ratings. If a website is rated poorly and you are not even willing to tell us which site you mean, there's a pretty good chance it's rated poorly because people really don't trust it. There's nothing we can do to change that. If you truly feel a site has been unfairly rated, please tell us which site you are talking about on the forum.
What comes to these reviews and "exposing us", you should remember that people who are upset about some unspecified website's reputation seem to be far more likely to write these reviews. While we do our best to respond to all of them, we can't force people to trust your website. I suppose for most people it's just easier to shoot the messenger.
