The buzz about Mac-websites being hacked (which didn’t even amount to that much buzz after all) was just yet another staged event by MacHeist. Honestly, I’ve never participated in MacHeist, as their ‘mission to support indie developers’ seems a bit off; it amounts to selling ‘promo bundles’ of which most of the revenue goes to the MH guys themselves. I find hype-machines fun if the end product doens’t turn out to be hot air, and if it actually supports people I like.
Gus has pointed it out before, but this really put the nail in the coffin for me. MacHeist is absolutely dead to me. That really left me with a very foul taste in my mouth. The websites that were ‘hacked’ weren’t in my feed-reader, and I now know why.
