Hidden files in Golly-2.7-gtk.tar.gz

This one isn't serious but annoying for someone who is somewhat obsessed in tidying their files:

Basically every file in the tarball has an "evil twin" with their filenames starting with ._(Original Filename).
I extracted the files using tar -xzvf
And I am pretty sure this is not a problem with my tar program because this is the content of ._License.html:
._License.html wrote:Mac OS X 2³åATTRµÎzå˜M˜Mcom.apple.quarantineq/0000;5557fd8a;Safari;885335AF-CEA1-4479-A750-9351D312B318|com.apple.Safari
Which is not too likely to be generated in Ubuntu.
Best wishes to you, Scorbie
