I have to agree.

Because it reflects very very poorly on pkgsrc's reputation.
For instance, It doesn't take much for a user (through no fault of
their own running the wrong OS) and curious about PKGSRC and/or UN*X
to click on the wrong link. And please don't respond with crap about
how they should be running a real OS or ... - malware ads on download
sites are carefully crafted to look just like the legitimate download.
BTW, I got curious and tried to take a look at the home page and see
what malware was displayed; turns out that sourceforge is down, again,
and based on their twitter account that is isn't a rare occurrence.
