Administrators Notice:

   As of August 6th 2010 All External Links are now WOT (Web of Trust) rated! Next to any external link will be a small colored icon showing how safe other internet users think that site IS!

Web of Trust:
WOT’s traffic-light style rating system can be understood by the smallest of web surfers. Green means safe, Yellow means caution and Red means stop. It’s easy, and it’s free. Get WOT now.

Would you like to know which websites you can trust?

The WOT add-on shows you which websites you can trust for safe surfing, shopping and searching on the web. Our safe surfing browser tool is easy-to-use, fast and completely free. Install it now!

 How to rate sites

    * Use your mouse to move the user rating symbol
    * By moving the user rating symbol you indicate what you think of the site
    * Your rating will be saved when you close the rating window or click outside it


When rating websites, please bear the following in mind

    * By rating websites you can share your knowledge with the community and help your fellow users
    * Rate only those sites that you know
    * If you feel that a WOT rating for a site is incorrect, please provide your own rating
    * If you use a site that does not have enough evidence for calculating a rating - indicated by the symbol   or - please supply a rating.

Do you trust this website? Is it safe to use? Does it deliver what it promises? A poor rating may indicate identity theft potential, Internet scams, credit card fraud, phishing, viruses, adware or spyware. An unsatisfactory rating indicates that the site may contain annoying advertisements, excessive pop-ups or content that makes your browser crash.

Vendor reliability:
Is the site safe for buying and selling, or for business transactions in general? An excellent rating indicates superior customer service, timely delivery and overall satisfaction. A poor rating indicates possible fraud or a bad shopping experience.

Does the site have a privacy policy that protects your personal identity and data? A poor rating indicates concern that your data may be sold to third parties, may be stored indefinitely or may be turned over to law enforcement without a warrant, etc.

Child safety:
Does the site contain age-inappropriate material (content that is sexually oriented, hateful, or violent in nature) or encourage activities that are dangerous or illegal?

  or     Confidence
indicates the amount of supporting evidence.

Participate in our active community

WOT ratings are powered by a global community of millions of trustworthy users who have rated millions of websites based on their experiences.

Links that have a Green Icon After the link are safe to visit.
If you see a Yellow or Red icon after any link on this site: you shouldn't surf to it. You should notify the moderators about the topic with a dangerous link in it: so they can remove the topic at once!

   I will not knowingly list anything here, at The Truth about Hemp, or at Software Santa, with a Poor or Bad Web Of Trust (WOT) link safety rating! As soon as I see those colors: the topic is trashed Or at least the link is GONE!

With best regards,
