Kaspersky gives a possible virus alert, too. That, coupled with the
overall appearance of the web site (a couple of graphics instead of
text, the FAQ, the "description" about Plain English Programming, the
fact that if offers absolutely no evidence of its claims, description,
information, whatever, just an opportunity to pay with your credit
card but it doesn't even seem to tell you how much), makes me want to
stay clear of it. Either a Trojan or a hoax, but it can't be
serious. Probably a rare situation when we must ask our esteemed
moderator to act... :-)
