So Apparently ArchLabs uses an auto-downloader to boost ratings


#1

News to me.

Anyone else have any ideas what the hell they are on about??


#2

Pretty bold statement to make with zero proof.


#3

Wow, wonder where it s from. Some jealousy here also right.


#4

I have no idea. It’s not a major thing but it is an out right lie.

Would be interested to see their proof.


#5

You bet @Dobbie03


#6

Looks weird, just saw that AL s 54th on Distrowatch right now, wonder what they might think also.lol


#7

I’d be more worried about the distros what have shot ahead so quickly… a r c o springs to mind


#8

Lol, good one.


#9

I assume you at least understand what they’re talking about. I do not. @Dobbie03


#10

I have no idea what they are on about. I assuming they think we have a constant download from Sourceforge happening to boost our overall numbers? I’m not sure because as far as I am aware those numbers are legit.

We don’t play silly games like that.


#11

lol, people are funny


#12

Yep, funny & not at the same time.


#13

Let’s all make wild accusations with no proof…maybe he is related to Donald Trump?


#14

lol, another good one ! Another fake news as he s always saying.


#15

Alternative facts!


#16

No point in wasting time on mentally handicapped people.


#17

Quite right there my friend. Quite right.


#18

That or the reviewer is upset that clicking the sourceforge logo on the downloads page goes right to a download, and not this page so they can look at the project information first.


#19

I thought that was pretty standard? Though people do get upset over the smallest things.


#20

I don’t know if it’s standard, but it’s obvious from following the links on your site that the intent of the user is to download the installation media. Shouldn’t be unexpected and a pretty trivial “con” when rating the distro.
