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:

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.
