Of course you have more rights to complain with announced ones, and this IS (theoretically atleast:) important. Not exactly about this case, but I received (not downloaded by myself:) the other day, an unsolicited e-mail with a virus, from (and via) my ISP based address, which I am going to report.
In the described case though, the site for download packages is widely known. Its not for one time release, but for subsequent versions. Besides, warning is in most cases included _inside_ the package's license, that no-body is responsible for damage, use it 4 your own risk, etc, etc.. Anyway, I am not encouraging dounloading to quick, but just am stating that forbidding refference to something already placed on the WEB - is absurd. >Mark C. > L.
