    Mert, you aren't thinking deep enough bud. Kier said we will be able to use the spam cleaner on our own custom mods, we just need to have the required functions to call etc.

    For vB 3.7 there was a modification released on vBulletin.org named Spam Decimator. Spam Decimator was a similar modification. Modification showed a spam button on postbit and when you clicked on the button it was opening a popup which had options on what you wanted to do. It was a brilliant modification and one of my fav vB modifications all time.

    xenForo looks similar however it has great UI improvements compared to Spam Decimator. However i know improvements are not limited with UI improvements. xenForo spam controls gives you a revert option also which is a great functionality. Without trying i can't comment any further but what we see in demo is a great tool and i am eager to use it ( unfortunately we will all have to use it )

    Default vB 3.7 spam options were functioning nice however it required too many clicks.

I have no doubt it can be extended into additional areas of functionality, including blog posts eventually.

    The Design Philosophies and Principles of xenForo is what sets it apart also

    "only a different layout" - you name it. Usability is the key, and this is were vB4 falls short, terribly so.

All the forum players have to seriously lift their game with the way that piece of software is slowly coming together. Extremely intuitive, innovative, functional and smartly designed.

    Watch and learn I'd say. Which is probably what they'll do at IB's.

    Prepare for an overwhelming groundbreaking VB 4.1

    Going back onto topic, is XenForo signalling a shift in general paradigm?

    No posting links here to sites brought to my attention by Kier himself, but massively going off-topic is kosher.

    Got it.

    As you were.

    If anyone can take me down a peg or two, it is you. And I like SPAM actually.

    All seriousness aside (), you and I have had our go-rounds, but I have never lost one ounce of respect for you in our past dealings. You have always been upfront and honest with me and I do appreciate that, sir.
    Thanks.

    Damn! I thought I was forgetting things again. But it would have made a nice memory.
