I don't understand. What does that mean?
doesn't look too good!
I've just read all of the threads you listed above... and OMG... visions
likes to stir! But I guess none of us really know the full story so can't comment.
Its definately a toughie, but I'm gonna contiune using the Semagic client for now... but could quite easliy go back to using the so called Offical Win32 client if needs be.Its a strange old LJ world we live in!
Why is it when I try to picture visions

This is all very sad! I would not be surprised to see this take LJ down, if they are not careful. I've got a permanent account, but it would have me thinking seriously about my continued involvement, if it were not for the relationships that are represented and maintained here.
hmmm, so if i dont stop using it, what happens? Will they know I'm using it?
this is stupid, as best I can tell. The only thing I can ponder that possibly set this up is over the whole spellchecker thing, because the client is GPL'd, no? As best I can tell, nobody's charging for anything, and if I *understand* the GPL right, forking the code is perfectally acceptable...the only thing that might cause problems is the spellchecker license.
*shrug* ah well. it just, if you're the sort that wants to keep everything legal, and you're using either the newer "official" win client or lj_sema, you're basically forced to downgrade. I mean, I know I purposely made the switch because of a few cool features lj_sema had over the official client, and to be quite frank, if they're going to want me to stop using it, they're either going to have to block me at the server (which would suck) or I need a better explanation other that visions
is being a petulant ass over something I'm not completely sure is his to be an ass over. The spellchecker thing is my best guess given what I know about the codebase and stuff.
Anyway, there's always pocketlj
, no? ;)

Its GPL'd, he can't do it!!!
It ain't been tested legally, but he should read
