Softpedia found .due. ...
Good or bad thing?
I'm pretty sure I've seen others on here encounter a similar situation, but I just received the following email from good ol' Softpedia:


.due., one of your products, has been added to Softpedia's database of
games and gaming tools. It is featured with a description text,
screenshots, download links and technical details on this page:

The description text was created by our editors, using sources such as text
from your product's homepage, the PAD file (if available) and the editor's
own opinions.

".due." has been tested in the Softpedia labs using several
industry-leading security solutions and found to be completely clean of
adware/spyware components. We are impressed with the quality of your

To assure our visitors that .due. is clean, we have granted it with the

Now, I'm obviously not losing any money off this or anything like that, but from other people's experience, is this a good thing, a bad thing, or neither?

Softpedia have a habit of uploading apps without asking, and then refusing to take them down, or even update them.

This includes uploading demo's by indie gamers and stating they are the final, free, version.

If you never plan to update or sell it, then I'd see it as a good thing.

|edit| The 'go to developers site' link, here, seems to be broken. It just goes back to Softpedia, so I'd ask them to change this. |edit|

Since it was a 2-week job done for an school competition, which I have no plan to sell (it's not really worth anything ), nor to update, I guess I'll just leave it. And since I don't actually have a website at the moment, I don't see what I'd ask them to change there.

Since it has a description on the site which has not appeared in any of my descriptions, it does appear to have been written anew, so it's probably not automated.
