Web of Trust
« on: January 15, 2011, 08:27:29 pm »
Hi,

are you aware of WOT: http://www.mywot.com/
It's a plugin that allows you to rate websites and comment on them. Its becoming increasingly popular. We have successfully rated down several scam websites with it. It is really worth a try.

Ah hell, this site...it has some imposters on it who posted claiming to be "Arvol Looking Horse" and "Chief Crow Dog." Anyone see a way to get the imposters kicked off and their "ratings" flagged?

Seems we've ticked off quite a few Germans including William Jervis.

The best reaction is if everybody here rates these sites..NAFPS has > 2000 Members, I see. If 1% of these members installs WOT and rates these sites down, this is the end of the story. There are much more real people than fakes, and WOT is terribly democratic.. the majority always wins.

That's a great tool!!  Most people will shy away from a site if it pops up as untrustworthy!!

if you put in this website, go to the comments, read the negative comments and click on them then you can disagree and flag them for review, as well as make comments of your own

here is the link http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/newagefraud.org

funny how "chief lookinghorse" doesn't support the site, but the main page has some articles from him.

on th eplus side, this site has a good rep despite the negative comments.
feel free to share any post I make as long as you give me credit. I want everyone to know who to send the hate mail to.

I just installed this.  It's pretty damn useful AND it's easy to use!
