Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Though my initial experiences with WOT were good, as time has gone on, I am finding more and more sites flagged as untrustworthy for reasons that appear to be politically motivated or were falsely red-listed en-masse by automated users based on other sites of a shared hosting server, with no equivalent review or correction mechanism when the issue (which never had anything directly to do with the correctly red-listed site) was resolved. At this point, I am having to ignore the warning and go to the site because there is legitimate and trustworthy material there that I need to access more often than the warnings turn out to be legitimate.

Those saying I and others are misunderstanding what WOT is supposed to do are missing that WOT is not advertising itself as a thought police filter, so it is a problem when that turns out to be a major function of the ratings system.

Even the forum behavior considered acceptable when false ratings are questioned is starting to make me wonder if it is suitable to keep it installed as an extension on my kids' computers.

I am very close to uninstalling this as an add-on myself.

Ни черта вы не защититесь с этим расширением.
Оно закрывает доступ к сайтам которые рекомендуется посещать для своего же развития, а не препятствовать людям под предлогом - опасно для жизни.

It is flawed because it will condemn all websites on a host that has had a few untrustworthy bad sites that have been residing on the same server. If there are 100 good sites on a server with one bad site W.O.T. will rate all of them as bad. That's definitely not good security, its lazy, irresponsible, and just not right to do that to sites that are trustworthy. I don't recommend Web of Trust. There are actual working security systems made by people that put the time in that make the Internet a better place. :)
Here are a few:
Dr.Web LinkChecker
McAfee SiteAdvisor
AVG LinkScanner
Norton Safe Web

This add-on gets abused to mark websites as untrustworthy only because of political opinion. Uninstalled because you cannot trust the "web of trust".

Works for many sites, but I've found perfectly valid web sites that WOT marks as bad, due to personal bias, not the expected virus-containing, rip-off, poor business practices, etc. sites. You cannot change that rating.

Muy buen complemento Rated 5 out of 5 stars

El complemento es muy util, lo uso mucho. Lo que no entiendo s que cuando valoras una web des del icono del navegador tiene un límite de letras que tienes que escrivir y en cambio cuando lo valoras des de mywot.com no hay mínimo ni máximo de letras que tienes que escrivir. Otra cosa que deberian añadir seria una traducción.
Por lo demas todo muy bien

WOT is organized crime. Web of Trust enables anyone to ruin the reputation of legitimate businesses. This is not what the World Wide Web should be about.
Do not download or use it. It is a scam.

Я бы не стал доверять Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Странная контора, очень часто оценка выставляется на основе субъективного мнения, сайты не содержащие какой-либо запрещённой информации имеют сильно заниженный рейтинг, общаться с представителями WOT бесполезно.

Good help for orientation Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Of course you can't trust any of the commenters, but the WOT ratings are a good help to find out whether a website can be trusted.
And after conversion with <bdo style="background-color: rgb(100, 209, 255);" id="sthz2-0" class="prxsthM42">SeaMonkey</bdo> add-on converter (Info: &lt;http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=40&amp;t=2834855&gt;) the add-on version 20131118 also works fine with <bdo style="background-color: rgb(100, 209, 255);" id="sthz1-0" class="prxsthM42">SeaMonkey</bdo> 3.33b1 (others not tested).
The converted Version is available at sourceforge net at https://sourceforge.net/projects/seamonkeyaddons/

Used to be a good add-on, but allows idiots to abuse the service and manipulate the public Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I am constantly annoyed by people giving a bad site "Good" ratings and good sites "Bad" ratings.
This add-on gives the false impression that the majority of people are stupid Nazis.
I can no longer trust this site to protect me from dangerous or scam sites, as too many irresponsible assholes abuse the privilege of "Free Speech".
However, I DO encourage those of us who can make those comments irrelevant by OUT COMMENTING them on every mis-rated site!

one for me,one for you ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

aufgrund von checken nach security scan usw. für den pc bekam ich die avast free virus version und damit auch ein add. das erste nach aktivierung war das ich wegen hoher insuffizienz etc. die add von betternet removen sollte was ich ach tat. plötzlich kam firefox und bedankte sich für diese info und bat um mein einverständnis diese übernehmen zu dürfen und die betternet add zu removen oder davor zukünftig zu warnen.
diese add ist einfach toll und weiter zu empfehlen.
add avast online security
da ich nicht gerade ein genie bin , war dies ein tollerkick.
aufbau ,using,menü sind einfach toll und effektiv.

Schade das hier nicht offengelegt wird, wann genau die Nutzervotings gewertet werden. So wirkt das System intransparent. Aber vermutlich will man sich nur gegen SPAM schützten.
Ich würde mich sehr über "echte" Meinungen zu unserer Seite "traum-deutung.de" freuen.

This is a very useful extension in letting you know if sites are safe or not. The mywot community is great, and the way the extension works is very good as well. A must have for both tech savvy and tech illiterate alike.

Excellent for making sure you don't get torched by a bad link or... worse. The privacy stuff doesn't always get populated but it's cool it's created and owned by the user community

Такой сервис нужно внедрить в поисковую систему. Было бы не плохо.
