You missed the part where developers are increasingly looking for kickbacks, even when those kickbacks mean exploiting their user base via ads and
spyware... And now malware.
This sort of garbage was well known way back when- the basic story being humans cannot be trusted. When Napster became a thing the word spread- I'm
told "lime wire" was its second coming, another way to spread malice.
I've even seen fridge "memes" lately, showing that people go to sites and can't even determine the "download" button that's from that site vs a
malicious ad to ruin their day.
I applaud you efforts to download and archive data- but the correct the record folks have more funding than you can imagine and they've taken it upon
themselves to make your efforts moot.
