Your statement about WOT being unreliable is totally unconstructive. PROVE that it is unreliable! With some better arguments than "it's user based" nonsense. Can you?

We are talking about malicious sites.This site is not marked as RED.
If you see Shazza's comment at last page it says : http://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=68.35.72.131&x=9&y=8
Also it WAS BLACKlisted by  http://www.malwareurl.com. It's not now,that's why it's "orange"=be cautious
 
That means that site HAD a trojan.

1) Altarir is not an array, but a scalar. He's one person, not many, jeebus.
2) That it's clean now doesn't necessarily mean it always was - and the opposite is valid, too.
3) Anythin' else?

The fact is that it had a false positive - it never had a trojan. The explanation was posted on the WOT forum.

WOT is full of false positives and false negatives.
The correction is slow and could let to tragic consequences (if the user let only in WOT judgments).
WOT is not security but false sensation of security.
Security is for experts and not for polling.
My personal opinion as usual.

"Full"? False. It has a couple of them occasionally, but what doesn't have any?

Time needed to correct rating depends on amount of wrong ratings. Often it goes pretty fast.

False.

Yeah, usual users can't even hope to be secure  ::)

To be serious, though, WOT has not much more fps than, say, hpHosts

Okay, guys, let's NOT turn another thread into a WOT flamewar, shall we?

I've been trying to get my site corrected for way over a year. Don't consider that fast or do you ???

Time for WOT to rely on actual scanning of sites and not the advice of would be experts.
WOT however doesn't scan sites at all.

Maybe asking on their forum again would help, no? I see you did this a long while ago, but why you're giving up so easily?

Advice? Wrong word. Opinion, rather.

And what makes you think those users who rate sites don't check them?

Please continue arguing with yourself.
I've stated the facts which you aren't interested in.

My personal experience. And they take molasses to correct their own (their users) mistakes.

Time needed to correct rating depends on amount of wrong ratings. Often it goes pretty fast.
My personal experience with FUD. Full of bad ratings and slow corrections.

False.
If you say so :)

YoKenny will blame you if you say this about hpHosts ;D
I've used it in the past and it was not that bad on infected sites (false negatives) but, really, there are false positives also.

Well, sorry, then. I just said I personally do not trust it.
