  1. I cannot say much about the authenticity of the information used to create the ranking. However, there is something sinister and weird in the way the presenter compiled the data. It does not make any sense whatsoever to talk about ranking and then go from least to most visited sites. To begin with, we are told “Top 15”, and we expect Opride.com to be on top so on. Now with 250k opride is 15th. Also, if one starts from the lowest, how can you decide the cut of point? Surely there are sites that fall below the Reporter which is now 1st (well, last) with 20k. The oversight on part of whoever compiled this info should have been checked and corrected by the editor. We do not throw up any crap as it arrived. Sorry, this is not good enough!
