confidence indicator - pulled, too much info, maybe include in a "how to rate" area?
This may sound confusing but it's quite simple. If the WOT symbol is light green, that represents a good trust for that category, if there are 2 or 3 "people" darkened on the confidence indicator, then it's "agreed" this area of the website is "good." If you have a difference of opinion and feel that this category deserves a much lower rating, say poor for example, then rate the site – you are not expected to go along with the crowd and you have the option of including a comment if you would like to explain your difference of opinion.

    The ignore list uses very simple pattern matching. It doesn't support IP address masks, but if you want to ignore the address range for example, you can add 10.0.0. to the ignore list. If the pattern ends with a dot, it will match anything starting with "10.0.0." (for example, it will match, but also Similarly, if the pattern starts with a dot, it will match everything that end with the pattern.

Ratings are not forever
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.
