Goodbye ClamWin, it was nice while it lasted

I'm sorry to say, I've just received the following e-mail from ClamWin, which means I'll now no longer recommend ANYONE use their software, and will be removing it from all computers I own and/or look after for others.

ClamWin team would like to thank all of you who voted in our poll and helped us form a broader opinion about the partnership with

ClamWin Team

Thank you ClamWin, for deciding you'd rather not be a security vendor we can trust.
