It seems kind of silly to expect people to read a wiki page in order to use the web of trust. Instead, there must be an easy way to allow the rating of people via the website. In order to authenticate a user an irc bot could be used to extrapolate information from a webform and communicate with gribble. I don't the the technical skills to do this but I bet one of you do!
If this were done, it would allow the layman to easily rate users, thus generating a better and more reliable web of trust.
Oh, you mean we're supposed to trust people's use of pathetic passwords as a means to secure their identities? hmmm... NO!
There's a step by step guide AND a youtube video. It isn't that hard, really
