...which I outlined in my post. It's really up to him whether he does it or not, hopefully he now knows what the consequences are if he decides to use it. In any case, I wasn't exactly advising him to use it; I told him how it would be done and then said it wasn't recommended to do so as certain aspects of Plus! would be affected. If he's not using any of the features that have been known to break in conjunction with Compatibility mode, he shouldn't have any problems.
When Messenger 2010 rolls around this "fix" isn't likely to work anymore anyway, so why not keep using it until then? Personally I don't have it in Compatibility mode, and I don't even use Tabbed Chats or anything, but if people understand the risk of using it, they should at least get some sort of answer.
