Top download portals to avoid
Michael sent this out to us internally but it is something that has bothered me for quite awhile so I thought I would get it out there so you would be able to be aware. I use downloads.com all of the time for some of the programs that I want to use but you have to watch what else is being asked of you. They are making money from your clicks and installs of products that you never really wanted. Beware!
Interesting read about how commonly used download portals (ex: download.com, tucows, etc...) bundle crap that you don't need. I think this is a really nice read and we should post it to the Facebook site. Not only does it tell you which sites bundle stuff, it also gives instruction on how to carefully read what you're clicking on and avoiding getting the bundled stuff in the first place as well.
