Dear Tom Grimshaw,

You're right, LL has no business telling you what software you can install
and run on your own computer, they definitely shouldn't try to censor OSS,
and they would look pretty despicable if they were trying to do that.  Good
thing they aren't doing that at all here isn't it? What they can do, is tell
you what software they'll ALLOW to connect to THEIR service :)  You are
still perfectly free to choose what viewer to use and connect with Emerald
to any other grid that still allows it.
They aren't policing anything but their own service, which they are most
certianly within their rights to do.

You're welcome :)
