I dont trust anything from anybody, and you souldn't either. I don't believe aanybody here will just 'trust' a download. its standard procedure not too.
always check anything you download, from any source, for trojans and viruss.

If you are referring to the downloads JP has on the server, i would be very careful in the use of anything from there. People have been known to mask a trojan as some sort of hacking tool.

For the Mac offcourse it´s harder to find nice programs, you just have to look harder. Or ask Ms Mittens. She uses them a lot too.
