Agfa's lies

[Text written in 2003] I am getting more and more upset with deception in corporations, and although I have pointed this major Agfa deception out earlier, I will repeat it here. Go, for example, to Fonts-Free.Com, which sports the title "Fonts Free Font List". You would think that this is a free font archive. Now click on the item "Cabarga Cursiva", and you end up here, where it says "Click Here to Download Cabarga Cursiva". Then see yourself being airlifted to Agfa's commercial site, where there is no download, and certainly not a free one. It gets even better: just do a search on google for "Maranallo font" (Maranallo was made by Graham Meade) and note the top ten hit page http://www.fonts-free.com/font/maranallo-italic-regular-win.html: however, this leads nowhere, as Maranallo is not even a subpage on the site. Somehow, Fonts-free (and possibly Agfa) managed to attract google hits to their site by using font names of designers that have nothing to do with Fonts-free. [Graham is rightly upset.] And how about free-font-download.com? You can be lulled into believing that this is a free font download site, but oh oh, clicking the download button takes you once again to Agfa, where you can buy the critter. In an era when every major corporation is fraudulent, presidents and prime ministers lie to wage war, and corruption pollutes the highest offices, the only thing we can do is fight it all the way.
