I'm not trolling, my friend, and if you look at my history of posts on this forum you will see such.Kindly, if you have no serious contributions to make, and with kindness, I would ask you to refrain from trolling
And I would ask the staff to prevent the thread from being invaded by people who have no interest in bringing content.
Rather, I am amused at the incorrect perceptions, and inaccuracy of your responses to folks' statements, about the demise of vBulletin. And then blaming XenForo for a lack of providing and enforcing protections against developers?
It is up to people to support, or not support, developers. People should make their own decisions as what they want to buy, or not buy. There are PLENTY of well-established and very ethical developers on the XF platform. I support many of them with my $$$, because they put out a good product that is helpful and worth of $$$. But beyond a reasonble level, it is NOT the purview nor responsibility of XenForo to act as the "Developer FBI" to investigate, police and prosecute developers (particularly unscrupulous ones).
Speaking of trolling, I almost think you posted this thread as an exercise in trolling. Did you?
