    I guess when you can't earn a positive review ... you pay your employees to post fake positive reviews.

    It's one thing to put out a subpar product.
    It's another thing to put out a successor product - that is worse.
    It's quite another thing to pretend said horrible product is stable ... when it's not.
    It's epic when your horrible, unstable product is so bad, you have to pay employees to lie to cover up your repeated failures.

    IB is so desperate ... it's just pathetic.

    Note: In an effort not to get this thread locked, I have posted no information from vBulletin.com. I have relied entirely on information from trustedreviews.com.

    IB just doesn't know where to advertise it's "flagship" product.

    Granted, I don't either. I don't think xenForo does, either. But what worked for xenForo, was simply word of mouth. (y)

    I see IB deleted the thread.
    Too late.

    This is why you review a product yourself!

    Personally, I don't like vB5 at all.. seems too different.

    Xenforo has been good, but without further progress it won't do much good either.

    my vB3 still feels faster than a vB4 or vB5 lol.

    I have screengrabs of the thread before it was closed.

    I will reiterate .. all the information I posted in this thread was 100% derived from trustedreviews.com.

    vBulletin, where we can't make great software, but our staff can pretend we do!

    The question is, can you trust the reviewers? :LOL:

    We are no longer allowing "competitor bashing" on this forum. Sorry.

    I understand that emotions are high due to the lawsuit and other events, but please respect this. XenForo will be better for it.
