I sent vB this request to cancel my license:
I would like to cancel my vBulletin license in protest of the actions of vBulletin's parent company. Specifically the filing of harassment lawsuits against competitors.
Customer Number: 916887415241
I do not want a refund, I do not want anything from you but to nullify this license.
Please do it as soon as possible, so I can get the cowardly stink of vBulletin off my hands.
Nothing personal, whoever is reading this. It's not your fault. You just happen to work for as*holes.
I received a response warning me that any cancellation would be permanent, so I replied:
Yes sir, cancel permanently.
And if you have occasion to sit in a meeting with anyone who has any juice over there, be sure to tell them why. Tell them at least one long-standing, previously enthusiastic customer finds what they are doing reprehensible.
About an hour and a half later I received a response saying they had canceled it. So that's over and done.
