Basically, I think any list member here who is interested should look at the
site himself/herself and draw one's own conclusions.

The site is and is supposed to be software neutral. I believe that the
owner does have revenue share deal set up with <competitor> for click
throughs, but as of the last time I talked to him several months ago, he has
never made a single dime from <competitor> based on this (ie, there is not
enough click through).

This is why I described it as an unpaid ad. If he wants to have a neutral
site, I think he either should give away no advertising or give everybody an

In addition, the owner makes mention of cartographic programs but recognizes
FM8 in no way whatsoever. This makes me, as an FM8 user, less than inspired
about contributing to his web site. That includes the FM8 tutorial we're
writing. I'd change my mind if the site were to become genuinely neutral
