I don't have time to attend office hours at those exact moments. Not everyone
lives in the States.

Yeah right. I read the posts too, and they seem to be all true.
This remark sounds like a poor excuse to explain why there is no
open development of client-side scripting ON THIS LIST, where it
belongs.

I'm sorry, but I agree with the statement of Maggie that the only sane
conclusion is that, as always seems to be the case,
"it is being done in secret with the intention of maximizing spin control
of reactions of the user community until such initiatives are fait accompli"

LL is simply not willing nor interested to listen to the (open source)
community; they want no discussion and want to push what they think is
best.
