ye gods, enough with the drama. We expect it on forums and blogs but on 
THIS list??? just grow a pair. Bottom line, Emerald devs screwed up and 
violated TPV, they are gone and so is their malware-infected viewer. LL 
did exactly what any responsible org would do and nixed 'em. Done. Over. 
END.

Now either get over it and pick an alternative viewer or dont let the 
door hit your posterior on the way out, ok?
