Not sure if it is the same problem as yours but thought that it might be connected.

its not quite the same, it is a .com, but does pretend to be english, as said, anything with a WOT red ring gets avoided by me, yet again this little addon has saved me, tho this one i wouldve checked out, to good to be true

WOT has saved me a few times but occasionally you open a green safe site.Then click on something in it and you get the WOT red warning.I prefer it to Site Advisor but just wondering if there are any more good ones out there for free use.Not keen on the AVG Link scanner either.

no, link scanner wasnt good, wot also lets you see personal comments by people
