In the internet world, the ever-formal guys have always lost to the informal ones, y'know...
    forums are about long term informal relationships, that's what regs are, no matter how much you want to be form it's about relationships.

    it's like show **** would it be to not have the vB team posting in chit chat.

    it's like xenons humour

    Hehehe... I saw the announcement in the last post column and immediately check the corner and I thought it was odd that they would release an RC5 when they are running RC4.

    I think it's funny. At first I thought it was unprofessional but lighten up. We need more unprofessionals like this... it keeps us sane.

    everyones allowed to cause a giggle or two, as someone else said, why would they release RC5 and not upgrade the forums.

    Come on guys, filburt is stating his opinion, that was a horribly bad joke Kier did, but hey, showing off sense of humor every now and then was good.

    I mean DAMn my mouth was hanging open when I saw that title. Kier, that was so bad LMAO.

    I realize that it is in good fun. However, the end result is that it reflect poorly upon Jelsoft. There are many people--and businesses--that are waiting for the final stable release to upgrade their sites, and posting deceptive announcements is not a good way of appearing professional.

    I see the humor but there is a place for it, and making false announcements as a Jelsoft representive directly reflects upon Jelsoft itself as a business. It would have been far more professional to post an announcement with a title of "vB3 Final to be released soon" and the appropriate text.

    I do suppose I more than walked right into this one, though, but I stand by my opinions.
    Give it up filburt1, go back to your hole.

    This is really only the first time they have done it. I myself thought it was funny. They are about to release a major forum software so hell if I was kier I would have done the same thing. Anyways they stated that there was no more RCs.

    Well yeah, I can see the point in that. But it was still just in good fun.

    EDIT: I guess Kier got tired of people misspelling his name.

    well seing emotion in a block of text is like reading a machine printing out messages really
