It wouldn't have to if the fact was clearly stated in the thread.
I'm not much interested in freebies, coupons and that kind of stuff. I found this thread by chance and only clicked on the link because I was interested in this particular book. Of course, a drm'ed file in a clunky format is better than nothing at all and I'm sure it can be useful to some, but it's rather frustrating to find this out after getting all excited about a deal. Hence the grumbling.
If I had know from the start what to expect, I wouldn't have complained and might even have downloaded the book anyway and be satisfied. Silly maybe, but that's human nature
