Red face Can you believe Nobody has done this Re:WOT (Fixed!)

Just a short Post I did not know this about the WU forums site until today and I've rectified the matter with a couple of Deft clicks
The Rating for WU before today on the (Web of Trust/AKA WOT website ) was Unrated and no review
All I did in the Chrome Browser Having the WOT app Link Live was to Click on the Grey O to open the ratings page and Gave WU 5 stars Clicked through the Links and got an acknowledgment message it Had been Recorded . Now sports a "O"(with an Orange Star) Have to be registered with WOT to add a comment.

I stopped using WOT and uninstalled it after this was published.

Is this still the case or has it been changed?

I think it may have changed, but I don't have any details. You can get WOT exrensions for Chrome and Firefox, but I don't trust WOT any more!
