WOT says links in PCadvisor newsletter unsafe

  dwsolo 11:40 12 Aug 2010

Having just installed WOT I received my first subsequent newsletter from PC Advisor and was surprised to find that every link in it was marked "unsafe" by WOT

"Latest news and features

BT to upgrade 75% of UK to super-fast broadband
click here

Samsung to stream 3D via internet
click here"

Could the reason be that PC advisor is redirecting its links through p2tre (whatever that is)?
If so, why?
A relevant search on Google gives direct links to PC advisor's webpages and those are all marked safe by WOT. So why does the newsletter use "p2tre" links which are all marked unsafe by WOT, since they all point to the same pages in the end.
PC Advisor is not doing itself any favours by doing this.
Very puzzled

Kind regards

I should have added your click here's are green with WOT and I do not subscribe to the newsletter so cannot comment on it.

FWIW The "click here" was added by the forum software, I quoted the address as shown in the Newsletters.
Curious that you are all getting green lights. Are we referring the exact same thing - ie the newsletter as seen in a web based email (gmail in my case) with the full addresses starting with p2tre?
If so, why should WOT be giving me reds and you greens?
even more puzzled....

Right click on your WOT icon in your toolbar and check your settings.

My settings are "normal system default"

BTW I note that WOT also rates all pages in the p2tre.emv3.dom domain as unsafe

  dwsolo 12:54 12 Aug 2010

(I mean p2tre.emv3.com)

All GREEN for me (as others above) Maybe you could try an uninstall/reinstall to see if it helps/makes any difference.
