First of all I apologize to all other members for uploading this to this category. I did so because I felt that I had no other choice. I do not believe this is being taken serious enough so I feel obligated to try to help others avoid potentially infecting their computers. I say potentially because it does not happen often by trying to download one of cu88's themes but there is a chance it can. I speak from experience. My computer actually became infected when I tried to download one of his themes as seen in the image above. One popup would not allow me to close Edge and I had to use the task manager to stop the process. When I tried to re-launch Edge it would always load with the popup. I had to clean my computer to get rid of it. I complained on his submission and he has blocked me from making comments.
If you are not happy with the add filled and potentially harmful free download links please report cu88. I am not on a witch hunt but cu88 refuses to listen to people and make positive changes.
cu88 has chosen to charge people for his themes and if you cannot afford to buy them he offers free download links riddled with adds and some are harmful. There are better ways to use adds. For example if he just wants the advertising revenue he could place adds directly on his site and not use hosting sites for the downloads that are plagued with adware, malware and even viruses. Another way he could do things which would solve the whole thing would be to offer a free version and a paid version. The paid version would be like a premium version which offered a little more. I am not a fan of people selling their themes but if they need to do so there are better ways to do it.
Note: I decided to put a stop to this so you can no longer download the themes. The zip file that I uploaded here contains 3 of cu88's themes for free with no harmful links. I am breaking one of my own rules by doing this but sometimes you need to take drastic measures to get your point across. I will keep this here until cu88 makes changes or deviantart removes it. At this point I do not even care if I am banned, viruses are worse.
