usedHONDA Posted May 6, 2007 Share Posted May 6, 2007 I'm posting this blog entry in the forum because hardly anybody reads the blog I've received a handfull of e-mails from people who wanted to point this out to me, or that had actually purchased from this eBay user and were a little incensed to find out they had paid for a download link to Paint.NET. You can see the list of this user's auctions here: http://stores.ebay.com/serendipity-retail . Paint.NET is not listed by name, but rather as "FULL PROFESSIONAL GRAPHICS PROGRAM PHOTOSHOP COMPATIBLE". (BTW, Paint.NET is not "Photoshop compatible", whatever they mean by that.) They are also selling copies of OpenOffice.org, some 3D modelling program (Blender, maybe?), and a HTML editor that I can't identify. Full entry I looked up one of the victims and sent him the folowing email: On May 6, you purchased this rip-off program titled "FULL PROFESSIONAL GRAPHICS PROGRAM PHOTOSHOP COMPATIBLE". Unfortunately, that was a copy of a free program called Paint.NET, developed by Rick Brewster. Not only that, but you purchased version 2.7 of it (that was made about a year ago).I found out about this on Rick Brewster's MSDN blog posted on the 27th of last month (see the post). I recommend you uninstall this program, contact serendipity_retail, and install the newest version of Paint.NET (3.07) asap. I've posted this on the Paint.NET forum so everybody will become aware of this user. By the way, sorry if this looked like spam at first. ________________________________________ usedHONDA, expert Paint.NET user BTW, that was sent to "andyb.pilot" Quote "The greatest thing about the Internet is that you can write anything you want and give it a false source." ~Ezra Pound twtr | dA | tmblr | yt | fb Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
