I think it's a good idea that you totally remove the possibility to use Web Of Trust, it collects and shares user data:

I just checked setting and don't see the WOT option there any more.

Oh, it's still listed in the parameters page, but it can't be enabled now. Thanks

You are referencing the βeta site not the live version of DDG. WOT has been removed from the live (main\default) DDG web site. As with any βeta software, functionality may differ from production code.

Any chance that WOT will be replaced with something else down the road (e.g. webutation)?

Yes, http://www.webutation.net would be great!
As well as https://www.virustotal.com also!

Was very useful for me. I hope they find a good substitute as soon as possible.

Same here. I found WOT very useful but this spying on there users is unethical. It sad that they did something so underhanded.:(

What I am sure is that right now, for the information that I see, few persons will trust again in WOT.
