I definitely agree with this post. As a desktop programmer I've been looking for some download sites to submit our product and at least 90% of these sites were just rubbish made for AdSense with those weird automatic awards. There are even tons of content management systems for download sites like this, most of them support the you-can't-sumbit-a-program-without-providing-a-back-link feature.

This would never happen if more software developers used creating a standard that jpg awards aren't good enough anymore, Beta Marker's system is similar to the digg system but is orriented over software, and adding a little button with the amount of marks this software got is a more reliable way of rating a software.
once enough people use this (and don't get me wrong, "enough" here is quite a lot!), the software owners would work harder on getting more marks then adding more jpg's of phony awards.
that's my opinion anyway....
