    What about free licenses for schools and universities? Most of them can't buy license and use nulled version. Give away free license can increase the demand of xenforo.

    They could just use one of the hundred or so free alternatives...

    Aha.... :rolleyes:

    Like I said before somewhere... I hate this 'i-want-everything-for-free' generation.

    free alternatives so ugly and they have a lot of security vulnerabilities.

    Yeah, I'm sure these "schools and universities" just used nulled versions instead :rolleyes:

    Any legitimate institution is not going to pirate software...Now, an everyday person such as yourself posing as one of these legitimate institutions to get a free lunch, now that's a different story

    Can I ask what schools/universities use forum software?

    MyBB isn't all that insecure, and you can find decent styles for it.

    Mike and Kier are doing this to make a living, not to give away their work.

    A lot of schools have communities setup for their students, though it is usually done by the teachers.

    I do not care about this, but most my clients are schools and colleges. I put them nulled vb for free, but conscience torments me.

    Oh wow it torments your conscience to steal paid software instead of installing a perfectly suitable free software.

    Why not use MyBB? SMF? phpBB?

    There are multiple solutions available free, why would you pirate something?

    Especially as you're calling them 'clients', that just rubs me the wrong way. Things such as this are completely unethical, far and beyond simple pirating.

    That's like suggesting that schools and colleges use pirated software (such as Microsoft Office, Windows, etc). Most schools are on a departmental budget and some local councils fund schools (in the UK at least) so they can purchase the software.

    People PAY you to steal software?

    Do they understand what you are doing?

    Do you understand the consequences?
