I have to say I support Stefan in all of this. It's not like
downloading tortoise is a special club for geniuses who have the
intellectual veracity to tell the misleading ad from the real download
link, but the fact that the link went to google ads or whatever should
be enough to clue most people in. If you made the mistake of clicking
on the ad and installing whatever it installed, then consider yourself
having learned a valuable lesson and move on with your life. ***LOTS***
of download pages have similarly misleading ads, one must learn to deal
with them. I agree that taking down the entire download page probably
isn't good for the project, and may even be called childish, but I still
find it all highly amusing :)
