Does MacUpdate really have such a restriction?

If so, they're no VersionTracker.  Back before it was gobbled up by 
CNET, VT was da bomb.   Folks might post a bad comment now and then, but 
I could step in to offer an explanation, or not that something's already 
been fixed, and that provided a productive environment.

This MacUpdate restriction just seems prone to competitor abuse.

Has anyone here written MacUpdate about lifting this counterproductive
