Autoslime Insults Patriotic Americans

Autoslime Labs: DWF Freedom and Independence (Hardy Har Har) http://dwf.blogs.com/beyond_the_paper/2006/07/dwf_freedom_and.html
Initially impressive as it makes viewing the proprietary crippleware dwf file format browser agnostic but after a moment of reflection and circumspection Autoslime's "Project Freewheel" should be more aptly named "Project Trojan Flypaper" it is nothing more than a hijacked web standard that has been corrupted to generate sticky crippleware with features "to come" from the masters of slime who dare compare their underhanded dishonorable slimey business practices to the honor and nobility of the principles used to found the former United States of America.
Especially since Project Trojan Flypaper is just that; a trojan initiative from the masters of slime who are now offering a crippled free file viewer to those who copy and paste a snippet of code into a webpage that resolves where? At dwfit.com which is controlled by whom? Autoslime. Bingo! Instant method to collect customer CAD files, analyze them, collect user data and data mine the entire collection.
Fools who give Autoslime their data for the opportunity to advertise on the dwfit website will once again pay to undermine their own well being. I tell ya, these pimps have got it down. Copying Google as they have was easy but I doubt Google will be happy if Autoslime tries to sell advertising using the term "CADwords" which would infringe on Google's trademarked Adwords.
Furthermore, I see no mention of any public API (typical of slimesters) without which there can be no "mashup" where the real value is being experienced by users who can utilize the published Web 2.0 APIs from those such as Google, Microsoft and others releasing real "Web 2.0" applications [1] to program their own applications.

[1] Simply put, Web 2.0 applications are developed to be browser agnostic and unlike Autoslime, Web 2.0 applications are built using the open standards as established by the W3C.
Web 2.0 applications utilize CSS, JavaScript and DHTML in conjunction with XML which is used to transport data asynchronously back and forth from the web application server. Perhaps the most significant aspect of Web 2.0 applications include a published API which allows users to program the application to meet the users requirements.
When the page must display vector drawings the Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) standard is used. SVG is of course an open standard as established by the process managed by participants of the W3C (http://www.w3.org /) but Autoslimesters have hijacked the standard, crippled it and present it as if it were some favor to each of us.
All of what the slimesters have done could be done by each owner of a CAD file if the slimesters supported the SVG vector file format standard which at this point they do not support in any way other than the proprietary and crippled Project Trojan Flypaper.
What you are seeing Project Trojan Flypaper do is what we could all do ourselves -- and more -- if this slimey company supported the web standards instead of attempting to hijack and cripple them.
And the fecal matter from this company dares compare themselves and their crippleware to the principles which men and women gave their lives to establish.

Project Flypaper Trojan outputs png rather than svg which is not supported by many browsers. My mistake for not reading further about the format being output. The rest of the commentary however seems to remain valid.
