Does uBlock Origin mean generally speaking that SourceForge is a source of "Badware risks" or specifically the Skim page ? (that was my question, I can not check as I don't have that plug-in installed)

I quoted all that uBlock said but I must say that I don't have the faintest idea of what it says. Sorry for my reply: I just didn't want anyone to think that I was looking down on Skim.

I do think, by the way, that uBlock is a good thing, at least for me: Source Forge I already suspected since the day I wanted to download Gimp  but: a. I probably would have nevertheless tried to download Skim and, b. in other cases, I just didn't know and I am glad I saved the time it might have taken me to clean up a mess.

As for my problem, someone on this list sent me a copy of Skim which I will upload on my site for my students to download. So, all is well that ends well.
