We found that some people get confused by the ads on the Sourceforge

no longer an optional add-on, but mandatory.

Are these Google ads? If so, report them to Google Adsense. If not,
report them to Sourceforge. Let's help fix the problem...

IMHO the problem may be resolved with a md5sum code  and a simple guide 
(one row command) both really visible on how to check for autenticity.
