Looks like DW removed the ranking panel on the RH side of the main page.

Yes, DW seems to have been hijacked by a special-purpose commercial distro called 3CX.
Shocking that DW is letting this happen.

What do you mean by that? Do you have a source?

I'm pretty sure 3CX have been an advertiser on DW for some time.

There is a note just above where the rankings normally are reading "The PHR table has been taken off-line temporarily. It will return tomorrow."

Cool. I went there yesterday to check out the table & had to go to this page:

https://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=popularity

I thought it was a design change... I'm glad that the table will return to its old position.

It's all working OK now.
The sponsorship appears to be benign.
Sorry for the overreaction - my paranoia was too active.

Beat you by about 10.512 hours. :happy:

It's just that no-one picked up on it. Even GC. (Those damned statistics 'll getcha every damn time! ;) )

Never mind. I'm still working though. :snoopy1:
