Agreed, of course, as is clear when you read my reply to see what I was 
-- and wasn't -- replying to.

For the avoidance of doubt, I included the full text of both replies I 
was responding to - my complete post is here:

LC's open source is gone, and cannot return. What's done is done.

All I'm asking is that we leave the past where it is, behind us, and 
live in the here-and-now.

And in this here-and-now, I don't have an opinion on the conversation 
between Jacque and Sean, which is why I didn't reply to them.

Lumping my comment in with theirs suggests a more complete reading may 
be useful before rushing to reply.

I hope you're feeling better soon.
