    Forums in controversial niches

    I'm considering starting a forum in a niche that could potentially be controversial. The main topic would be one thing which in itself should be uncontroversial, but it skates along the edge of topics that will undoubtedly attract trolls and shouty type people. Should I bother? What is your...

    Why is there so much vB hate?

    I can't help but notice how many times I've browsed this forum only to read how terrible vB software is. Let's say (hypothetically) that is it, why is it always a repeating campaign theme on this website? @TheChiro mentioned: If the majority have moved on, why do people still complain? It's...

    Do you consider Brivium addons a security risk?

    As you probably know, Brivium was banned from XenForo after being exposed as running a hackers collective / site and using stolen code.
