Two scam projects: LuninuX OS and Sn0wL1nuX

I found these two projects (LuninuX OS and Sn0wL1nuX) parasite on other projects by relating to them via tags. There is no source code available and if one visits the homepage and wants to download, he will be asked to send money via paypal first. The licenses are completely bogus and fake and also offending.

I think it would be good to get rid of this scam.

And there is even spam in this forum from "minutedjhonson1".

hey dufus, its a linux distro and as alway you can download via sourceforge or you can get a usb or dvd copy by mail which you have to pay for via paypal. if you took the time to READ the content in the site you would not start this accusation. if you visit http://sourceforge.net/projects/luninuxos/ you can download it free of charge.
