The topic in which I was previously addressing Skarface05 has been closed, so it appears I need to take this to a new topic so that people can get their say in the matter. Skarface; you are one of the most prominent members of the SoftMii Crew. At least, you were the only one to post a link to download your (free) software, embedded in a Paid Download link, requiring people to sign up for an offer to get to the download itself. It is to you that this topic is directed. You dodged my point when I said that server costs to host your tiny, under 50MB RAR file, could not ever reach the range of $500. You said you wouldn't grace that comment with an answer. So, how about some transparency, friend? Can you explain to me what monumental server costs that SoftMii.org is incurring, to require you to use an entrapment method of providing your files to the users? Better yet; explain to me, if you would, why you wouldn't at least tell people that they link they were clicking was one in which they would have to provide an email address and complete an offer before being allowed to download your (free) files? Doesn't that seem deceptive to you? Doesn't that sort of have the same theme as a bait-and-switch tactic? Are you really so arrogant that you couldn't have simply told the community that you were offering a download link which requires participation on the part of the downloader, and that the reason was to help support server costs (which, as we've discussed, are negligible for your tiny file, which easily could be hosted at no cost on Rapidshare/Megaupload)? What kind of balls does it take for you to seriously think no one would take offense at that tactic? You have insulted this entire community and have stained the entire team of SoftMii.org. When one of your accusers confronts you, the topic gets closed. That's the reason I made this one; you already saw how everyone in the scene completely immolated you in the other topics. That's why you edited it, with the lame excuse that, "Everyone thought it was a scam". Kid, if you had TOLD people that you just wanted a hand, you would probably have had people tripping over themselves to contribute, either through offers or through PayPal donations. I think I speak for most of us when I say that your method is insulting to all of us, and a transparent attempt to recoup your "losses" and your "sacrifice". I eagerly await your swift and honest answer.
