Looking at the page
without being logged in, I can't see the difference between our stuff and the
advertisements. Which means, i just got an e-mail from one of the users I try
to get working with osm who told me: "I tried to install the software you're
providing ... and my virusscanner sais it has a virus"
And what i found after investigating more is: he tried to install one of the
software which was advertised by the google ads. I personally think we should
make much much more clear, that this is not software for OSM, but
advertisements. Because this is not a good revenue for us, since (luckily)
his virusscanner said it thinks this software has a virus in it.
Can we PLEASE make really clear which is advertisement and what is OSM-stuff.
I think, simply adding someting like
<H3>Advertisements by GoogleAd</H3>
before the advertisements would make it more clear.
