I agree with you completely on principle.
It's extremely hard for me to veil my contempt for this viewer and it's developer however after considering how they've behaved and effectively stolen code from some of the hardest working people in the TPV community. That offends my ethical sensibilities deeply, and I'm sure it does quite a few others on here as well.
So if I can dissuade someone from using this viewer in any way I'm going to. Perhaps my wise crack wasn't understood completely because you hadn't read the entire thread. I apologize if that was the case.
