The world of online communities is a relatively small one - which explains how milepoint ended up running on a brand new community server called XenForo. This new platform was developed by the programmers of VBulletin - which powers Flyertalk. VBulletin was purchased in 2008 by - you guessed it - Internet Brands. Still with us? But the lead programmer for VBulletin was unhappy with his new overlords and left Internet Brands to create a new company - which just so happens to be the one that powers milepoint. As we said - it is a small world. Of course, in keeping with tradition, Xenforo is involved in its own lawsuits with Internet Brands (at least according to Wikipedia).
