Many of the attacks on it are bogus Rated 5 out of 5 stars
WOT is performing beautifully. It is true that any ratings done by actual humans are not going to be infallible. Users should read them and keep their brain engaged.
However, it appears that there is an organized campaign here to discredit WOT and it's community. Yes, many sites have been hurt by WOT. Sometimes that is the very goal of having a community who can fight back.
What isn't included in some of the complaints here is how many of the sites are/were dangerous, virus infected, scammers, snake oil sellers, hate sites...
If a legitimate site has been hurt they can go onto the site or even contact the community and ask for reviews. There is a process and most of the regulars in the community are reasonable people who will weigh the evidence.
The bottom line is even the ratings here need to be taken with a big grain of salt.
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
A great add-on; it is very helpful and it had prevented me from getting into malicious webpages.
However, it has been failing recently and it makes new links to be opened on already opened tabs.
If it wasn't for this, I would still be using it, as I think it rating system is effective.
Thanks for the feedback

You may change your search engine. Rated 3 out of 5 stars
"Ratings aren't showing up in search results"
In Japan the search site for Yahoo is "Yahoo! JAPAN".
Surely the above answer in WOT site's FAQ is correct, but almost Japanese think that "Yahoo!" engine includes "Yahoo! Japan".
Then when you want to this add-on, you may change your search engine.

This addon is not really that effective as it will not provide ratings for brand new websites that might be full of malware and other nasties. Consequently, it gives users a false sense of security. You'd be better of using an addon like NoScript to protect you.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20150708).
Dont even bother Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Unzuverlässig, da viele subjektive und Fake-Berichte. Abgesehen davon trau ich dem Unternehmen nicht zu mit meinem Surfverhalten vertrauenswürdig umzugehen.
Ich hatte bisher im Internet mit gesunden Menschenverstand immer schlechte Seiten erkennen können und das wird fortan auch weiterhin so laufen.
Good idea but bad algorithm. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Some sites that were safe back in the day but now distributes malwares still appear as safe due to the overwhelming previous "I trust" votes. If you want relatively accurate results, you have to manually view the details of every page you visit and sort comments by dates.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20150708).
Ratings based in opinions doesn't improve security in a reliable way. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
It certainly works for knowing what people thinks of the sites we visit but that doesn't mean we are being protected. It is a dirty strategy: they say you're "safe" if you follow the opinion of the people that makes WoT reviews. This may help some not too smart people to avoid a scam, but clearly won't work to be safe (not even a little) from adware and malware due to the fact that it's based only in opinions. It can be a weapon against "undesired" sites with "unethical" views.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20150708).

Great add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Protects you against bad sites, very reliable and easy to use.
*One little problem, since Fx 39.0 though: In the field "Advanced Settings" under "Select when ratings are shown" unchecking boxes doesn't saving settings any more. Any idea why this is happening?
Downgrade sites as revenge Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I really thought highly of WOT until they gave a bad rating to one of my online galleries because they thought I was spamming in the forum. Rating has nothing to do with my site. I've apologized three times now for inadvertent "crime" but the yellow circle remains. Will never use them again.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20150708).
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
If I could give 0 stars I would. Major scam. Rates pages child safe that aren't, artificially inflates negative reviews for sites it doesn't like. Type in WOT scam in google, and look down a few lines. It rates one page on WordPress as untrustworthy because of a negative review of WOT. It does the same for a Tumblr page for the same reason. DO NOT USE.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20150708).

WOT currently making gmail links unusable. (FF 39) Big fan of WOT before now but this is beyond frustrating. Don't like having to disable WOT to use gmail.
7-06: updated (20150705) but states I've disabled when enabled. Issues continue. Did removal and re-install but no help.
7-07: took few more removals and re-installs, restarts, finally back to working like before and no gmail issues.
Sorry for the inconvenience, we released an update and should have been fixed. Please make sure that you are using the most recent version.

Put me out of business Rated 1 out of 5 stars
In used to own Veretekk, a free marketing automated social network for people that could not afford to pay for autoresponders, web hosting, webinar rooms, etc. Even with 100s of positive reviews, Superman and his cadre of buddies destroyed our reputation, business dropped, and I lost the company from financial ruin after 20 years of running it. 1000s of people that depended on Veretekk lost there accounts as well. I made a Youtube recording about the attacks too and they managed to get one of those videos terminated and laughed and high fived over at the MyWot forum over their success.
