[Gimp-user] Unpleasant Gimp advertisement and download link on DuckDuckGo search engine

I did a search on DuckDuckGo for the terms digiKam handbook. A sponsored link popped up at the top, entitled "DigiKam vs Gimp", saying "Why Get DigiKam when Gimp is Much Better? Download Gimp for Free Now!"

The link goes to www.gimp.us.com.

Here's a link to a screenshot: http://ninedegreesbelow.com/files/random/duckduckgo-sponsored-link-indexed.png

The link leads to a self-described ad-laden download site: "Additional software may be offered to you via opt-in ads during the installation."

Probably there's nothing to be done about such things, but the comparison to digiKam is unfair as they aren't direct competitors.

For what it's worth, I sent a complaint to DuckDuckGo.
