I referred someone to blender and apparently, when he installed the software on his computer - it terminated his AOL connection. This guy is in the UK - and he says that AOL told him that their anti-spam, anti-spyware, anti-whatever that blender and python are “known spyware” programs and they refuse to allow internet connections via their connections and they drop it imeadiately.
This sounded really fishy to me… sounds like AOL (or whomever the ISP is), is just covering their rear?
So-- my question is… is blender (or python) spyware?
I have no issues at my end using blender (other than bugs) since I don’t use AOL - have my own DSL and ISP. I figured since the sources are available, blender org would not be stupid to do spyware stuff… Please confirm.
