    "Used for political censorship"

    June 3, 2013  |   By ChdeLang

    Pros

    A good idea in theory, horribly implemented

    Cons

    Used to censor political opinions
    Used to censor alternative thinking
    Used to censor people they dislike

    Summary

    The system of WOT (Web of Trust) is misleading. Contrary to their mission to provide average ratings from users, the ratings are actually of their moderators which (if numbers add up), spend 23 hours per day rating sites without actually inspecting them.

    To add to its shenanigans, WOT usually likes to rate any competing services as "extremely harmful" and claims them to be "unsafe for children".

    What you really mean is that you're mad users have rated your racist or creationist site as untrustworthy. Perhaps you should take a hint.
