A very helpful website for IT professionals.
This isn't a dangerous site, and I agree with the other IT reviewers the rating needs to be changed. I created a WOT account just so I could add my vote for this site. Our company has used the resources on this site for years.
I get top expert advice within an hour or two.
It is utterly stupid to ban this site.
Better ban WOT for such poor advice!
Actually, I am now cancelling my WOT subscription on this basis!
I want to pay for good advice, and certainly not pay for WOT's misleading warnings.
Site is trustworthy, but ratings are being subverted because some can't read that some parts require a membership, and because Google rightly indexes an answer they want 'right now'. So in a fit of bile, they rate it as a 1 without any further ado. It isn't a bait and switch site, people are just showing their ignorance. All of those pissy reviews should be struck out as irrelevant to the ratings.
So....please change the name of this extension to 'If its not completely FREE it must be dangerous'.
75/100 for child safety...? This is a tech support website...if you are making recommendations for people that you are asking to trust you, you need to do so responsibly.
Does this extension have a mod/dev team??? Have you noticed that virtually every single score from a user is a 5 and every score from a free content-troll is a 1???
Can I also give Experts-Exchange a one for NOT delivering pizza??
This extension is not only pointless, but its exploitative. Credibility is a two-way street.
Not safe for kids---hahahahahahahahahahahaha --whose running this thing??
I used to go to Experts Exchange quite a lot back in the 00's. I found it very useful. However, after they put up their paywall I stopped using the site. I can imagine that the paywall gives them financial resources to curate the answers more thoroughly than most are. I did feel that they were not much better than average when I tried the trial membership several years ago. But this is not a scam, it's a homegrown business.
Experts Exchange is a great site. You can get full access by either paying for the service or by answering questions. People complaining on here are people that are wanting the content for free. Well a lot of daily newspapers have their content behind a paywall and you can only see part of an article. Experts Exchange is the same. You can see all of the conversation but you have to subscribe (or contribute content) to see the actual confirmed answer. You can see enough of the conversation to know if the answer will be helpful though. Just because you don't like their business model, doesn't make it a scam. I have been using this service for over 20 years and think it is brilliant.
The site legitimately has information, but it's a bait-and-switch in that when you get to the answer, it's hidden behind a paywall. Somehow they expose it enough that Google thinks it's there, but in reality it isn't
One of the most useful technical information resources on the internet. People who provide answers here generally know what they are talking about, unlike most forums. This is certainly not any kind of scam site.
Once upon a time, this was all completely free--as best I can remember. Now, it seems that you have to pay to ask a question, but I haven't needed to login to view the conversations. I've been coming here for over a decade, and I've never seen anything that would justify it being called scam. Other resources professional trust rating resources that I have access to rate this site as very safe. Whether the service is worth the money or not is something you'll have to decide for yourself.
This is not a dangerous website. Its superior information provided for a fee. That you might put together from a slew of free/opinion sites and blogs.
Its not a scam because they straight up ask for money to see the full thread and participate in the community. Their website passes the established web url security scanning site. Their SSL cert is not expired and from a recognized authoritative CA. Etc. etc.
