hi Bill,
I'm sorry for what happened to you.

Be aware though that
1) the official LL viewer IS an open source viewer
2) copybots existed BEFORE the viewer was made open source

Please transmit this information to those people that told you that
"they can do it with open source viewers", because they're actually
spreading misinformation and confusing others when they say so.

Best regards,
Opensource Obscure
