Web of Trust rates us poorly based on basher comments

Postby Scepcop » 09 Nov 2014, 01:41

ALERT! Pseudoskeptics have been trashing the reputation of SCEPCOP on Web of Trust by claiming that we are an untrustworthy site. Some of the comments even call us a scam, without basis. WTF? See below:

https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/debunkingskeptics.com

Please help counter this by posting a review at the link above to counter and correct their lies and false statements about us. And rate us higher so we have a higher credibility rating too. There is no reason to call us a scam. I do not spread any false information on this site and am considered by those who know me to be one of the most credible people they know. Thanks.

I don't understand something. Half the comments are positive. So why is the rating for my site low? That doesn't make sense. It's like WOT is only counting the negatives and ignoring the positives. Do they have an agenda for doing that?

The website states that the rating is based on users making unproven claims. That's pretty much the majority of the posts on this site, though it appears some give a low rating just because of your other website.

Web of Trust does not scale it's ratings based on votes, it bases it's ratings on website content.
Your rating is so low because in your joke of a paper on pseduo-skeptics you use nothing but strawman attacks, ad hominem attacks, equivocation fallacies, anecdotal evidence ( to name just a few) as your base, and you provide ZERO evidence to back up your claims.

Because your site is intellectually dishonest at every possible level, it is not a trusted site.

Having posted on this site for 5 years now, I honestly don't believe that Scepcop himself lies. I just think that he doesn't employ critical thinking, readily believes what CTers write, and doesn't do his own research. There's a difference between between lying and being lazy and gullible.

Your use of the word "gullible" reminded me of something that I came across this morning. Somewhere between Kim Kardashian's ass pics and a zoodle recipe, this said a lot to me:
