good riddance to an early 'hacking tool'?
the end of messenger can't come quickly enough.
messenger was bad anyway - why would anyone want everyone and their dog to know you were on line?
think of all that crap extra internet traffic - "i'm here - woohoo!"
from memory, messenger was bad but even more bad as a hacking tool and component of other hacks.
probably still is today - maybe that's why its demise is delayed (let's hope its not the spooks having trouble migrating?!
