    Oh snap, I'm right behind Feldon!!

    Incidentally, most of my rep comes from the comments where I've held IB accountable for the issues.

      At least 1 surprising person on that page. In addition it seems several have last visited in 1969.

          • Any reputation you built up here in the past gets thrown out the window when you insinuate that people creating positivity (Fabian) are using smoke and mirrors (for lack of a better term).

            Maybe it's just me but I find that somewhat in poor taste.

                So you will accept any banging-the-drum which seems to be in a positive direction, and attack anyone with doubts? Smoke and mirrors can come from anywhere. You're putting up Fabian as a hero. I don't. It's as simple as that. I judge by actions, not words.

                Normally I do not draw attention to myself, but I was asked to state why my posts should have any weight.

                    You don't have to justify why your posts hold weight, considering it's your opinion.

                    I could post that the acquisition would bring the second coming of Jesus Christ and not have to justify it. Sure, I'd sound like a lunatic, but it's my opinion, so I don't have to justify it to anyone.

                    • Not only that, but I don't recall anyone asking to him to state anything about himself or his posts.

                      Somehow, he offered that up on his own in an attempt to justify a poke at someone else, someone he's never met.

                        Tell me please what you guys have added the last year? I don't see it. I never had so much problems with my vbulletin as the last six months and things aren't exactly going much better. The previous company that owned vbulletin was not only here for the dollars buddy, there was a high level of love for their product i sensed. Love seems far gone at this point.

                        • I agree. As I just posted in another thread I feel IB has lost the last year of development fixing the bugs in the "gold" version of vBulletin.
                          I don't care what's coming because I won't believe it until I see it. All I know is in the last year I've seen jack.

                            I don't need your permission to post, and vice versa. If you don't like my posts, use Ignore, or Report. I'm not going 10 rounds with you in this thread over who has the right to post what, where.

                              My comment concerned that quote right there. My point being no one did any such thing.

                              Similarly, no one said anything about your right to post.

                              Don't worry though, it's probably just me.

                              • I think this topic has spiraled out of control. It shouldn't have.

                                I have seen this topic spiral out of control at xenforo. People think that iB being owned by a private equity firm is bad for business, the truth is, its what they've been at the inception of iB.

                                I don't see this acquisition and merger as earth-shattering as the acquisition of vB by Internet Brands. Both situations are different.

                                Yes, I am saying that people are overreacting to this.
