FlashFXP changes company name and company hands for the 5th or 6th time. In a long string of privacy law suits and a sordid record of corruption, FlashCorruptedStealsOpenSourceCodeCallsHomeFXP has yet again changed hands into another sleazy holdings company to make it easier than ever before to take your money and deny you keys or suspend your upgrades. And with mounting legal challenges brought against every previous shady offshore-shell company built to grift and glom money for unfortunate customers, the need to change companies arose again. Giving FlashFXP money is like giving it away or giving it to line the pockets of the corrupted principals at FlashFXP.

It is the best FTP, with the worst case of ethics I have ever seen. This author has become pompous with his success.
Would you chop off every man's p**** because he might be a rapist? No. In effect, he wants control of the software you bought. Its bad enough he doesn’t give you the source when you buy it to see whatever else he may be pulling off in the background. This, without source and various undocumented behaviors, makes for bad taste in my mouth.
See, to me its about being devious. If he can't accept his role as a vendor and has to hyperextend himself into my affairs, he wont stop at protecting his intellectual property.
How do I know he doesn’t take 90% of his ideas from the ncftp source? How do we know he is the original progenitor of the code in the first place? I don’t mind paying for stuff, but to have even the slightest possibility of your license being revoked is unacceptable. Another thing is that when I was looking into buying it, it required my name and a credit card number. Sorry. If I saw this in a box at a software store on Amazon, I might buy it. I do not want my name branded to something. And, since I am buying a license, what if I want to sell the software to another? My car doesn’t have my name branded into the hood.
I resent the people in this thread who paint me as a thief when I want to preserve my property rights and to remain private and anonymous. The only reason the people who made my car know who I am is because I get a WARRANTY from them, something no software vendor has ever had the balls to do, actually guarantee merchantability.
If we the computing public do not demand excellence, honesty and disclosure from our vendors, the level of mediocrity, collateral market and bloat will continue to rise ad infinitum.
So, to those who haven’t tried it, do so, and make sure to tell Charles de Shylock you wont buy it unless he doesn’t know who you are or what IP address you use.
