Ratings in WOT degrade with time, as the rating gets "older" it's "value" decreases. Once the value reaches nil (zero) comments from trusted sources are automatically removed from the Scorecard. The reputation of the site remains until other ratings are given; whether they agree or disagree with the current reputation status.

The list of trusted sources includes:
