In all seriousness, your feedback has resulted in an awful lot of re-thinking within NewsGator, and I've personally been involved in several very thoughtful discussions about what to do. The end result? We've listened, and we're changing our plan.
We've heard loud and clear that you don't want FeedDemon to stop working after your subscription runs out. You believe that you purchased it, so it should continue to work. Period.
And we agree.
Because of comments posted here, we're going to change FeedDemon so that it does not stop working after your subscription runs out. You'll still be able to read your feeds and download new items. As many of you suggested, more than likely we'll disable features that rely on the subscription service (basically, synching and other pieces that tie into NewsGator's online services), but everything else will continue to work (forever, if you like).
Does this sound better to you?
