Umm we're talking about freeware here, how exactly is that bad for business? My websites have limited bandwidth resources and once those resources are used up I am charged $3.50 per gigabyte. If anything it would save me money by elminating the freeware section.

I'm a bit confused as to why you think this is such a big deal, It is a common practice to block 3rd party direct linking. After all I am the one paying for the bandwidth.

I have no problem with people using download managers but I don't think it's my responsiblity to explain to them how to configure it to work with my site.

Tucows is great. If it wasn't for them FlashFXP would no longer be shareware. With over 100k downloads a month there is no way I could afford to host the download much longer.
