On the other hand, just being Fyodor is sufficient to get him taken seriously.

Not that anyone cares but personally, I'm happy fyodor posted this and 
I'm forwarding it to anyone that I think might use download.com.  I 
think it's crap anyone changes anyone's code like that
---------------------------------------



I used to use download.com a lot.  I trusted them.  I told friends they 
were trustworthy.  What Valdis said.  That's all it took for me to stop 
using them and to tell everyone I know to stop.  Hope someone at 
download.com is listening.
