He sells resources that he has funded development on, so he's also protecting himself. He is also close to quite a few developers and has probably purchased products from the majority of major resource providers here to support their work.He's not a add on developer though, so hes just sticking his nose in to something that's not his concern. Whats his ulterior motive?
The Xenforo team are fully capable to come up with a solution on their own terms, which I'd support.
I don't see why you're so against someone making a proposal. It is completely XenForo's decision if they implement the changes or not, and these changes addressed all of the arguments people made in the past, even most of yours. It's more like you have some sort of personal vendetta against Stewart now for no reason, which is just completely childish.
