Let's just say I still have a owned license for a forum software then this company decided to drastically change its licensing which essentially left owned license users in the dust. To me, it felt like a decision driven for the sake of the company's income statement (I'm okay with) without any regard to existing users (not okay with). All the reasons I read sounded like excuses to me and anyone who could add up to 3-digit numbers could figure out why it sounded like excuses.
I know there was a pretty big controversy when this was officially announced and there were just too many threads/posts about it for me to follow so I stopped bothering with it and decided to start sunsetting my usage of said product. (Actually, I would like to know if there is anything I can do with the old version if anything. I'm sure it's vulnerable to exploits so probably worth less than nothing now.)
So all of that left a really bad taste in my mouth that I would like to try to avoid.
So (here's the stupid question)... with the understanding that no one can predict the future, can someone "in the know" give me some talking points that XenForo is less likely to follow the same path?
