    All the "call home" feature does is tell Jelsoft that somewhere is accessing the admin panel on a vBulletin forum with the URL of the site and license number. There should be no concerns with privacy since you already are required to tell Jelsoft all of this information in the member area.

          The joke....

          Aluminum hats keep the microwaves out of your brain so the government cannot read your mind.

          The water glasses are to protect against the aliens because they are allergic to it. It also helps if you have asthma because they breathe poison gases.

          If you still don't understand you need to rent the movie "Signs" with Mel Gibson. Another good one is "Conspiracy Theory" with Mel Gibson... Wonder if that is a coincedence or if he is just trying to educate us against the true evils of the world.

            The joke...is that vb would spend its time spying on all the forums. They only have a "call home" feature when you log into the admin cpanel. This validates the license...and is not a spy in your forum. Makes sure the forum is licensed is part of the purchase legalese.

            But in case you think they are spying on you....get a vb and wear aluminum hats to protect yourself.

                Well, as most know, Windows can and does track what you do, rather MS does; take Windows XP for instance. Most software you install no-days have such.

                    You mean the info they already know/you provided to them when you bought vB?

                      I just had a long look at the vBulletin code.

                      Did you know that certain messages are tagged and e-mailed to Hillary Clinton?

                      Did you know that Jelsoft owns a fleet of extremely quiet black helicopters?

                      Did you know that the Trilateral Commission and the Illuminati use vBulletin on their intranets?



                      Well, none of that is true.

                        No new info..... They use it the "call home" feature to make sure the copy of vb you are using is the one you purchased. Its part of the license agreement.
