If you think that then you are wrong. I have been actively engaging in any way i could find including looking for a cheap lawyer. If you have suggestions, i am all ears, otherwise...

Well, you can do this in Firefox too under "Options", "Privacy & Security",
Thanks but i will refrain from recommending browser changes to accommodate Google Idiocy.

Well if we are really grasping at straws we might as well replace the directory listing with a proper HTML site.

More or less, Google is not blocking the downloads anymore AKAIK... I believe tank had added a block (return a harmless blank page) on googleBot. or whatnot...

Things look good on Google Safe Browsing, no warnings anymore (https://transparencyreport.google.com/s ... ing/search)
However, VirusTotal still gives a warning from Google Safe Browsing, while all the Anti-Virus vendors shows the link is clean. (https://www.virustotal.com/#/home/url). I suppose this is because the information VirusTotal is using is old and not updated yet, though that seems a little bit odd to me. Not sure how long that Google Safe Browsing changed the status for AutoHotkey, so I guess we can see again in a few days.

We most likely have a misunderstanding here. I meant people (users) should be the ones to decide for themselves whether to do something or not (such as browsing the AHK site, downloading/using it etc), not let third-parties like google and the likes tell them what (not) to do. Sure, you can waste time and money paying a lawyer that would sue google (ha!) but that won't open people's eyes. They need proper education and that's a can of worms I'd rather not open now.
