You got my vote.

I've never been, specifically, to arduino.cc, but I have been rather vocal to moderators on some other site/forum I had been on for years after I had been pointing out that they were actively promoting what I referred to as "crapware" that really provided nothing of value (think registry cleaner type of software). I think they were sponsors of the site, and The Powers That Be didn't like me calling them out.

I'm not the type to burn bridges, but I made an exception in this case and left under no uncertain terms.
