And yes, I do consider it a "profit" of sorts. I don't have any problem at all with you profiting from TSVN—but I do think it's wrong if you have to rely on deception or support someone else's deception to do it. There's no question that the "Zoom Downloader" ad is designed to look similar to the Sourceforge download buttons, and as has been reported on this list, people have mistakenly clicked on it thinking it was theTSVN download button. It is *not* clearly marked as an advertisement, and it should be.
