With the onslaught of new attacks recently against GOS (again) and other sites by TSR I felt like I should chip in. TSR is bad news! Besides the fact that it is a paysite (tsk tsk) they will share your personal information and they have done it in the past. TSR is notorious for hacking sites, shutting them down and often replacing them with pornography trying to eliminate the free competition. Many of you are familiar with the Sims Magazine Living Sims, I'm a member there and I always enjoy reading their wonderful professional magazine, they were hacked several months ago when TSR started their magazine along with one of my favorite object creators Awesims. Anto at CoolSims has also received numerous hacking attempts.
I feel so bad for the sheep who get sucked into TSR, there are so many better sites out there that are completely free, don't share information, don't put worms and trackers into downloads and actually love the sims for the game instead of trying to scam you out of your money. I hope you will inform yourself at http://tsr.mustbedestroyed.org/
I'd also like to point out for a moment that we should not blame the creators, there are some great creators at TSR that do work just as well as the rest of the sims community. I have downloaded some things from TSR but I always run it through the virus scanner first, encourage TSR creators to depart and create their own blogs (if they lose their creators then they won't make any money). And to other blog owners, back-up regularly! When people complain about us not including Newsea meshes in our retextures it is for our own safety, even then it's probably still risky.
Don't give in to TSR, inform others about their misdeeds and avoid them at all costs. If they don't get the subscriptions then they are powerless. Be sure to be safe and check downloads for worms, back up your sites regularly. Support free and safe content, don't support TSR.
