I was surprised that Window Into Palestine, an informative site on Palestinian reality was classified by WOT as “dangerous”. It does have many javascripts but most seem just the normal stuff (addthis, google, etc.) Nothing alarming really.

The above is taken from yesterday’s post about the latest Google attack.. (BTW, the Blog in question is back on line)
BUT, WTF is WOT???  Novice that I am had no idea. It stands for Web Of Trust.

Web of Trust is one of Mozilla’s most popular add-ons. Our safe surfing tool uses a traffic-light style rating system to help you stay safe when you search, surf and shop online.

WOT ratings are powered by a global community of millions of trustworthy users who have rated millions of websites based on their experiences. The WOT add-on provides reputation ratings to search results when you use Google, Yahoo!, Bing, Wikipedia and other popular sites, helping you protect your computer and personal information. Your online email account – Google Mail, Yahoo! Mail and Hotmail is also protected.

WOT is a creation of Mozilla, a Web Browser that came on the scene after the demise of Netscape. They appear to be independent from the outside, but they apparently are one of Google’s prime ‘charitable organisations’ at the moment. With the support received, I am sure comes a commitment to uphold the ideals of the Google Corporation, which includes the blind support of zionism. Hence the determination that Window Into Palestine is a ‘dangerous’ site.

The reality is that the zionists themselves are the dangerous ones. Their Web Tools should be avoided at all costs, including their Blogsite, Blogger. There are other vehicles where you can set up your own Blog, far away from the harassment of Jerusalem’s ‘overseer’.

    I thank you so much for getting involved in this attempt by some to silence the distribution of articles from Window into Palestine this was a message that I received:
    It appears your review request to Google was successful, as your site is no longer listed as badware.

    Maxim Weinstein, StopBadware

    The page that was appearing when people went to the blog Window into Palestine seemed to have come from this site
    a organization that was born out of at Harvard University’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society under the direction of Berkman faculty co-directors Prof. Jonathan Zittrain and Prof. John Palfrey.

    Jonathan is the author, most recently, of The Future of the Internet and How to Stop It; and co-editor of the book Access Denied. The blog sure got a little taste of that.

    How funny is it Harvard who houses Israeli war criminals and provides education most likely on U.S.A. tax payer money is Involved in this.

    You know Blogger took down the blog a couple of years ago and then i got access very quickly after a out cry from the Palestine Blogs community

    but yeah Google, blogger, wot and this stop bad,org ware should have a better system in place if you were to give them the benefit of the doubt that they were trying to censor the flow of information. How the hell can something like this happen by allowing users to vote or of a click of a button cause this. It should be mandated that a person should be in direct communication with the blog owner before something like this happens.

    Anything like ads and widgets on Window into Palestine is found everywhere on a ton of websites even mainstream news websites so how come they don’t get the same treatment.

    anyhow thanks for your involvement in this matter and making people aware of not only the adversities the Palestinians face but what what people in solidarity with Palestinians face as well.

    I’m on your side regarding Zionism for entirely theological reasons clearly stated on my blogs. I suppose I have the advantage of being almost entirely unknown, and the lack of traffic means neither good nor bad attention. So I have no direct quarrel with Blogger. I also run another blog at WordPress, which is reputed to silence critics of Zionism, too. Again, not enough traffic, so I don’t get attacked by the Zionazis.

    However, the site Window Into Palestine from a purely technology point of view stinks. When I visit there with any graphical browser, the sites scripting causes my system to chug away uselessly doing nothing important, just hogging resources. This is a problem with a great many sites, but theirs is about mid-range in my scale of experience. The essential information offered there could be presented much better and at less cost to the visitor. It’s one of the places where I only visit using a plain text browser because of this (typically Lynx on my Linux machine).

    StopBadWare, like many other such organizations, must of necessity depend on nominations, and like anything else open to user input, can be easily hijacked for political abuse. So they do some good, some bad, and we should take them with a grain of salt.

    In response to the third comment, by Ed Hurst, I’ve been to Window Into Palestine – I just checked again to be sure – and believe that you are having one of those YMMV issues (Your Mileage May Vary). Yes, their site is, in aesthetic terms, hideous – and demands a great deal from your graphics card (I’m using a laptop with an integrated card – not anything special … I can’t use my flight simulator on this laptop – I have to use my desktop for that), but – it is a dual-core device, which probably makes some difference, and I’m using windows Vista – running Firefox *(not using WOT). With that said, Window Into Palestine loads very slowly – but, it isn’t the slowest loading page I’ve tried to access – that award goes to a poetry website I frequent that takes ages to load … but, it’s worth the wait.

    Wie viel ist Aufzuleiden!
