    Rated & AGREED!

    This reviewer got a lot of shoes from all those sites.
    PS - the spammers are marking red comments down.

      I am sure that soon enough

      I am sure that soon enough we will see many bad sites being marked green once the spammers hit the sites ratings in force to influence the markings to make them more profitable. It's only time and we have seen this happen on the IOBIT.com scorecard. http://www.mywot.com/scorecard/IOBIT.com

        Re: I am sure that soon enough

        Spammers have very little chance of affecting reputations, because the system doesn't trust their ratings. The effort required to gain some trust before starting to spam makes the whole thing unfeasible from financial perspective, because the spammer will lose their hard earned trust immediately anyway.

          I hope you are right however

          I hope you are right however spammers do not think nor act like normal people. They go to extreme lengths to get their message across and affect us all. Asigning an automated bot used on thousands of machines to then create usernames and spam or rate a site, is not uncommon. It takes little time, effort or money but has an impact on everything it does.

            It's not uncommon, but it's completely useless. Maybe some of the spammers who have tried this before would like to share their experiences... :)

              Seems we have a difference

              Seems we have a difference of opinion here :( I am inclined to believe there is a method in their madness which works for them and looking at the revenue they pull in from spam, the figures speak for themselves ($8 billion during 2009). Indeed it would be nice to have feedback from a spammer but I doubt this will ever happen. I have watched how they have changed tactics over the last 20 odd years and complacency has always given them the upper edge.

                Re: Seems we have a difference

                I don't see how the two concepts are related. Just because sending spam can be profitable for some people, it doesn't mean spamming ratings works for manipulating reputations.

                people who visit these spam sites probably don't use WOT

                Just because theses spammers are earning billions is not indication of the ineffectiveness of WOT. WOT only works if you use it. I suspect that those who get taken in by span or phishing sites aren't WOT subscribers.

        Yeah,

        It's a weird name, but I don't know why they named it with shox. Maybe they don't know the spelling of the shoes because this scams and spams are mostly originated from China. Still funny website name though.

                I suppose once the scam has been spotted it is just as quick and easy for the scammer to backup the MySQL database and connect it to a new site and server, a couple of days work at most :(
