Why is DOB demanded to register? You could use that data for anything malicious (I made one up). Why after going to the trouble to register am I prevented from commenting because I have insufficient privileges? Have you got something to hide. I've been trying to weigh up XenForo and VBulletin but is now a no brainier. I won't be buying XenForo because it makes me suspicious. It'll either be VB or something else.
