Having no memory of anyone's having advised you to upgrade to Lenny, I have
just reread the entire lengthy previous thread. I could not find a single
person advising you to upgrade. In fact at least two of us explicitly
advised you *not* to upgrade, if you were uncomfortable with doing it.
One person did indeed say that the support you would have on this list would
dwindle and did seem to suggest that it would be better to upgrade, but he
did not explicitly say so. And he was correct in his statement that fewer
and fewer other people would be using Etch. That is merely a statement of
fact. And one could reasonably infer that he himself, were he in your
situation, would upgrade. But he certainly didn't actually advise you to do
All any of us were trying to do was to apprise you of the actual situation,
since your decisions seemed to be based on false premises.
Perhaps part of your difficulty here is that you do read carefully the advice
you are given.
