I was informed that the mentioned application was a potential spam. May I suppose that it is dangerous to use? I am asking you this because I have found it in one of the NVDA forums. Nobody has ever found it to be a suspicious app. Do you think that I have done something wrong by posting it? If yes, I am sorry for it, and excuse me for unintentionally doing so. I have been reading Librivox-read books, and it would be a stupid thing to ruin the site. If you find the app to be a real danger, is it possible for you to remove my post so that other members may not come into contact with the app?

Best regards,

No - what the admin was saying was that readers to our forums could think that your post was spam - unsolicited advertising. So she moved it to a thread that was made for posting such links.

My apologies, Dejan! I should have sent you a message of explanation. (I usually do when I move a post). No, your link is not a bad one; I do not think it is dangerous to click. And Tricia is right: we prefer links of that sort to go into the Non-LV Links thread that you have already seen. We don't allow advertising, but your link was to a non-commercial (free) app that is related to LibriVox, so it was OK to post.
