True, but while the others have expressed their confidence that any
apparent change isn't intentional, your post not only suggested it may
have been, but then also went further to suggest that such unilateral
changes to contractual obligations may be something they're doing with
other agreements as well.
Moreover, Mark Wieder offered the sound reminder that many factors can
affect apparent disk usage, such as spam bins which have been
overflowing with the recent rise in global spam activity, so it may not
even be a mistake on their part but just a spam bin that needs to be
Exactly why Simon's disk usage appears lower than he expected is still
unknown, but the one thing we do know is that the people at LiveCode
Ltd. have consistently honored their license agreements. They've
frequently posted here confirming this when questions arise, and I've
seen nothing to the contrary in my 18 years of doing business with them.
Please stop and think about it for a minute: for any party to attempt
to unilaterally alter contractual terms in ways that favor themselves to
the detriment of the other party would be a breach of contract in most
jurisdictions, and unethical in all of them.
That's a very serious allegation, even if raised behind the
accountability dodge of "if".
It boils down to raising unfair questions of character, and if you're
going to question the character of any of my friends, whether it's Kevin
or Klaus or Scott Rossi or Mark Wieder or anyone else, you will meet
with an equally strong response.
If you're unhappy with the response to what you've written, next time
consider writing something different.

We seem to be in agreement that you don't know what happened with
Simon's account, which leaves this reader wondering why you expanded the
scope of the discussion to include license agreements no one was talking
If you want to give them the benefit of the doubt maybe that was a post
that didn't need to be sent at all, and just wait until Monday when
they'll likely chime in here.
I'll wager that when they do they'll once again confirm their commitment
to honoring their license and service agreements, as they've
consistently done over the years.
TL/DR: It would be not only more pleasant but also more productive if we
could kindly refrain from random conjecture and instead solve problems
by focusing on known facts, and asking appropriate sources of
information for any facts needed.
