As you may already know, we've previously debated some of the WOT ratings in great details, with one particular thread attracting quite a bit of attention and although some of us have taken away a better understand, and quite possibly more appreciation of the WOT system, the fact remains there are still some unanswered questions regarding matters such as why would someone rate a site negatively but not leave a comment to backup their ratings?.
Well, hopefully these and any other questions you would like to throw at WOT will be answered directly by Sami Tolvanen, the CTO and co-founder of WOT itself. We contacted WOT and they have kindly agreed to review any questions posted here and provide the answers. As you would expect, Sami is a very busy man and quite possibly won't be able to participate directly in the thread itself but we'll throw open the doors to any questions you may have and we'll close this thread on Monday 19th December (23:59) at which time we'll choose around 10 questions (should there be more than 10) for Sami to respond to.
I'm sure you'll all agree that his acceptance of this invitation is commendable as most other site advisories wouldn't entertain the idea of accepting questions directly in this way and although there are many FAQ's to be found on WOT, I'm hoping that Sami can enlighten us all to some of the mysterious workings of WOT and clear up any misunderstanding we may have over the service.
Please post only ONE question at a time, and do be aware that if we, or anyone else, can offer the answer immediately, we will attempt do so, otherwise, if picked to go forward to Sami, hopefully he can answer it.
Please do take this unique opportunity to ask a serious, well thought-out answer as it will most probably only happen once in our lifetime.
I've also included some links below to WOT's FAQ's and other support area's:
