exactlyThis all makes me laugh. IPB and vBulletin in the past have been copying each others features to try and better one another for years without any of this stuff going on now. MyBB also got away with creating a very obvious clone of vBulletin it has to be said without any of this.
Why can't IB just accept that forum developers are always going to look at another forum boards strong points and use it for their own forum software if they feel it can benefit from it.
all companies are copying each other since years, right?
newest example => ipb3 will include soon webdav to edit templates.. (oh wait, 1000 other webproducts use this too. )
