    This could not be at a worse time. They want to stop the sales planned for tomorrow.

    It's one of the trick by the big companies trying to bully the small companies that they feel threatened.

    XenForo will not give in to this bully tactic.

    Internet Brands reached the line, but now they've crossed it :(

    I would rather wait and download it later than getting Mike 'n Kier in troubles...

    Yeah, announcing that a day before sales start is definitely an awful behavior.

    None, they "believe" this is --'

    Also, the one day before sale is really, really pissing me off. Why not earlier? :S

    Well, they base it on copyright, yet they have not seen the code.

    Indeed. The "base it"... Kier 'n Mike started from scratch, and of course there will be a few things in there that look like vBulletin, because there's no other possible way!

    It shows their lack of confidence in fighting it out in market...

    Looks like Internet Brands are trying to spoil the opening day for the XenForo staff.
    I think the definition of the word Jealous should be changed in the dictionary.

    I think if they did nothing wrong (witch is what i suppose) releasing the software tomorrow or the next year changes nothing.
    But, if they copied something (i really can't get how IB can claims so, if they didn't looked at the source code) they are still in time to change it.

    After this, tomorrow i will buy 2 copies instead of one. I'm sure i will use it sometime soon. Maybe another ex-vb convert.

    Indeed, but that's why I rather want to wait. If they did, which I don't think. I really don't want them to get in trouble.

    Definitely buying tomorrow. Internet Brands has removed all doubts in my mind.
