Just for the record, a quote from that old post:

"...We are looking for beta-testers for our new product - Scribe Report Generator...
...We offer a free license to everyone who provides us with a feedback on bugs, inconsistencies, or constructive criticism that helps us refine Scribe."

You can check Google to verify.

No idea what you are talking about. The core design of Scribe was never discussed on the NG. Only flames over the fact that the post was made.

See above. The "community" does not care. Only a few zealots do.

Good. Hopefully, this useless thread will die a natural death, and the self-appointed guardians of the NG purity will start doing something productive, to justify their paychecks. Received on Thu Feb 17 2005 - 20:27:58 CET
