I agree with your point, the PRIV is no longer relevant here, but it’s logical since CB reached an agreement with TCL.
Unfortunately, rambling about it here will not fix anything. I’ve done it several times, rarely get even other user’s attention and usually end up coming up with a solution myself.
At least from my latest experience, while posting on the forums and/or articles might help get an issue noticed, the suggested channels serve as proof of a widespread issue.
I don’t think those of us noticing the issue will loose much time if we send the proper feedback and might bombard the developer enough to acknowledge it and look into fixing it.
