    Wow, very lame of people to do. I hope they catch the persons who did it and sue them and have them pay for the losses!

    That said, we support ezboard imports

      I beleive it was a inside job. See, Terry (a friend of mine who is the ADMIN at hotornot.com (i'm a mod) and they are good friends with the boys over at ezboard. (Along with the dudes who started HON). Anyways, they switched over to phpBB from ezboard. Plus, a bunch of weird things have been going on with the ezboard staff.

      I think it got alittle overheated and they screwed up along the way and had to hurry up and "ditch" ezboard company.

      But whatever, that's my two cent.

              I don't think it was all free... and some of the paid customers were business customers.

                A host can be hacked whether it's free or not.

                  I just hope they have got better with there backups
                  As I know when I was with ezboard around 2 years ago they were not too host with them. Only backing up forums like once a month

                    I don't think it was done on the inside, it wouldn't make sence if they are advertising on the forums of the free boards.

                      Not all free hosting is bad. ProBoards, while simple, is perfect for a small web-based community.

                            Some of the people who lost their forums (and serious business income) were paying upwards of $2000.00/year for hosting on ezBoard.
