      Hi Marko,

      yes, why not?

      However, is there a way not to make mistakes?

      For example, I saw once a malware-warez site that was announcing a freeware of mine.

      I couldn't do anything about that, as this site is hosted in some kind of "nowhere land"...


      Have a nice day,

      George

        Hi George, not entirely sure I understand what you mean - if it's in regards to us getting something wrong then that's why we invite everyone to have their say and if we do get something wrong we're quick to react (although, of course, we don't ever get anything wrong) :unknown:

        If it's in regards to another site doing wrong, alas we can only really concentrate on dealing with the matter of safeguarding users from bad freeware, not warez sites, hopefully people avoid warez sites altogether but I doubt it :unsure:
