Should this site be closed down entirely (assuming it is still under the

of links pointing to it, and it would be better for them to be invalid
instead of pointing to this crap?

SourceForge has taken the gimp-win project control away from me
(apparently due to inactivity, although they haven't done anything
like that with a few other inactive projects I'm a member of), and so
far they haven't responded to the message I sent them to cease the
distribution of the installer.


That is quite a nasty scenario- we have the former project host to
have apropriated itself
of being the target of download links to actively distribute malware with
GIMP brand.

I think that if some (not many) communication attempts go unresponded this is an
issue where we should tap on  Gnome Foundation and check whether there
are legal resources we can lay hand on to get them to stop it
