    Seems to me like the companies first trademark violation... Some people just don't waste any time.

    Criticism sites are fair use.

    Correct. If xenforo tries to take them down, it would be seen as a violation of democracy. The best thing xenForo can do is prove them wrong.

    But we don't need to bring more attention to the site on this site. :)

    True that. Im pretty sure the owner of that website does a search here at least once a day to see if that website comes up :)

    I'm sure they won't be the last one, but I agree, just goes to show we will need to prove them wrong. :)

    Besides I do not even believe the author actually thinks XF sucks, it seems that it's meant to make fun of fanboys and how they think and act. The best way to react to this is by having a laugh with it and not take it serious.

    Well his real motives are revealed. He's starting to sell xenForoSucks merchandise. That i think, xenforo can sue for/ get into a legal battle. That doesn't constitute fair use.

    Kier will probably buy one of those coffee mugs and have a cup every time another ten thousand XenForo licenses are sold... at least until the lettering wears off the cup. :D

    I think by suing him you actually give him more publicity while damaging your own reputation 'look at XF, they can't take a bit of criticism or fun'. Seriously if I was running XF I couldn't care less about it.

    ...oh wow, I thought I'd seen some weird people before, but this guy takes the cookie.
    After reading a few of the blog posts, I'm still unsure as to whether the guy is serious, or not, heh.
    I would buy one of those cups to, just to give me a laugh everyday, hehe.

    According to http://who-hosts.com/
    xenforo and xenforo* are both hosted on ThePlanet.

    Maybe it's just a marketing ploy to attract people to xenforo? :)

    Well yeah, it goes back to proving them wrong by making an awesome product :)

    If it was made by the devs, i think they would of use whois guard.

    You're right. I didn't think about checking the whois at GoDaddy.
