We constructed this list for our members' benefit. These are our reasons:
- Despite good intentions, some of the listed tools give a false sense of security, or may contain mistakes that can harm a member's computer.
- We want this to be a Safe Download Zone, and these rules reduce the risk of damage.
We cannot stop users from distributing these applications elsewhere, but they may not be announced OR DISCUSSED on the GMC.
