  1. So, it's been about three, maybe four years since I've been active on this forum. School kinda got in the way and I had no free time. Oh, and I guess me getting Photoshop also kinda contributed to that. Either way, it's been FOREVER. No idea if any old members still hang around here (CMD? pyro? BB?), but it'd be neat to see who is Anyway, I wanted to let you guys (and Rick) know that I'm still alive and very much benefiting from the years I spent at this forum. As of now, I'm in college as a graphic/web design major. You really have no idea how much this forum changed me. Had it not been for this awesome community, there is no chance I would've ever gotten to this point. So yeah, THANKS A TON, PEOPLES! sidenote: Rick, you're the reason I listen to Nine Inch Nails, too

  2. GIMP is not the one advertising. GIMP is a popular open-source graphics package that is maintained by an honorable group of developers. Their primary site, gimp.org, contains the download links to clean setup packages for Windows. The advertisement in question is from Wise Downloads. Wise, appears to have a business model by redistributing other people's free software packages for Windows with an augmented setup that installs some badware alongside their own . But the ad makes you think you're getting a clean copy of GIMP. No where on the wisedownload.com site does it mention that the setup packages come bundled with some other stuff. GIMP and Paint.NET are both well known within the graphics community and complement each other nicely. If you've heard of Paint.Net, you've likely heard of GIMP as well. So even a smart user, who's visiting the site to download paint.net, may see the GIMP link and say, "Hey, I need that too. Let me click this link to download it". Oops. Ok, I think I've said enough. I don't really want this thread to drag out. I've registered my complaint. It's been duly noted. And I appreciate people listening.
