I couldn’t find a more appropriate forum to whine about this, so here I go.
For any of the Circlefade modules, the website and manual links redirect to a fake “Global News” site (at least for my location), and then any attempt to click out or back goes to a pitch to invest in Bitcoin.
The github page doesn’t appear to have any useful docs.
Most annoying. A whois search reveals this…

…and the registrar dropcatch.com exists to snap up lapsed domain name registrations, and then auction them off.
