The punks have ruined WoT Rated 2 out of 5 stars

WoT was the first of its kind and for several years was the web reputation system everyone else tried to imitate. Unfortunately the rankings system has been abused like everything else, and for the same reasons. Users are treating WoT the same way they treat online forums, ranking sites based on whether they agree or disagree with the content. Business owners are downranking their competition. WoT has become nothing but a contest between different agendas, with hardly any concern for the original purpose of the system.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20120926).
