Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Reference convention

Ok, what kind of references should I be using?

I can see that people are using the citation reference (square brackets) for some definitions but internal hyperlinks for links to other things which could also be considered definitions.

I have used the citation reference for links to FAQ answers. This seems to be wrong now that I look at other people's entries.. is it?
