I panicked right at the start and got my account blocked because I told some acquaintances I liked that XF looked like a risky buy. That was in the first weeks when all we had was the VB warning email telling us (wrongly) it was illegal to buy XF.
I fled and tried IPB - it was awful.
When there was more information I thought about it some more, and went into the legal issues involved thoroughly. Based on some legal experience myself, and many years of assessing business risk, I decided it was OK after all.
I came back, started a new account as Morgain and since then have done all I could to help XF keep going.
