When I discovered the WOT website it was my understanding that this website is to be used to identify widespread threats involving SPAM, MALICIOUS (MALWARE) CONTENT, VIRUSES, PHISHING OR OTHER SCAMS, BROWSER EXPLOITATION, ANNOYING ADS OR POPUPS, BAD CUSTOMER EXPERIENCES, SPYWARE OR ADWARE, HATEFUL OR QUESTIONABLE CONTENT, ETHICAL ISSUES, ADULT CONTENT and overall CHILD SAFETY. The threat of “untrustworthy content” is meant for content INVOLVING the items mentioned above. By reading the “About Web of Trust WOT” section on the website one can learn the purpose is WEB SAFETY from purely TECHNICAL SECURITY to helping people find sites that they can actually trust.
Unfortunately there are individuals who do not understand that the WOT website is NOT MEANT for CONTRASTING POLITICAL VIEWS and have hijacked WOT for political purposes. If all users were to do the same thing every website involving politics would have the BIG RED CIRCLE attached to them. And that would include the websites of members of Congress, the Supreme Court and even the White House. This is because the American society has so many diverse and often passionate contrasting political views.
THIS PRACTICE DIMINISHES THE INTEGRITY AND CREDIBILITY OF THE WOT WEBSITE.
Organization created by the Koch brothers to support the conservative view point to support or punish politicians in Washington. Recently they have been producing information and ads the choose to twist the truth in very obvious ways. In fact checking the content on this site, some of the lies can be harmful and affect peoples lives. Just a suggestion, the owners of this site should explore the social ramifications of their actions. I see in the comments that supporters of the site choose to use name calling and bigotry when addressing fellow Americans.
This is a safe website. No harm has come to my computer visiting it. Those here giving a negative rating to this site are the type of people that screws up community based rating system like WOT by letting their political view dictate how they rate things.

They are fine. They are for activists who want lower taxes...not hateful, full of crap and containing dishonest material as someone suggested. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion..that is what makes this country great.
