scuba, you do realize some of us have been here a while...

(and are/have been still renewing based on these packages - the now killed key/registration method seems to have been active as far back as 2011)
After the upgrade period is over, you can keep and use the most recent NewsLeecher version, released within the upgrade period time frame, for as long as you like.
Dunno about you, but 'as long as I
like' sure seems to be 'forever'.
and some of us (like me and kublai) have been here and paying for a really, really long while...

The only time I really look at the web site or forums is when there is a problem with the software... like suddenly the registration isn't working or it wants me to pay it again. So to have this level of change without any real warning after resetting the password just feels... wrong. Not that I don't get the need for it, as a business that is trying to transition to being a service, but a heads up if no concessions were possible would have been nice rather than "it fixes registration for some people"... especially considering over the years (far too often) recommended workarounds to new bugs would be to go to a previous version
Anyway, good work newsleecher =D> I don't think there are very many paid software products I've stuck with for 12+ years.
