on the linked page you write:
"If you like it, Make Noise! Show your friends, put it in your
blog/page, put it in forums, everywhere you can. I'll make noise too."
That is really totally not helpful. If you want to get involved in GIMP,
then get involved and contribute. Making noise is just going to turn
away the people who actually put their free time into developing this
application. Instead of making noise you should start to contribute and
ask others to do that as well.
