No, I was trying to point out that your position was flawed with a (stated) pathological case. It had nothing to do with forum software.Big-Jim wrote:Apparently you are now trying to justify your position by making up some ridiculous cost for forum software.
For forum software, those prices aren't horrible, but for somebody starting out (like a student), even $140 may be a bit much. However, if a cheaper (or free) solution does most of what they want, perhaps they have some time to spend to work around the limitations of the software. Your time may be too valuable to spend doing that (I wouldn't know), but that may not be the case for others.Big-Jim wrote:The last time I checked a new license for vBulletin costs $249 or if you already have it you can get an upgrade for $209. I never said vBulletin was great forum software, and there are several other choices of forum software out there besides vBulletin. In fact, if vBulletin doesn't fit your needs, you can get XenForo for $140, which is even less than vBulletin.
Still having reading problems, I see. My pathological example specifically used two pieces of software that cost money.Big-Jim wrote:OK fine, have it your way, it doesn't matter if the software does what you need it to do or not, as long as it is free it is the greatest thing since sliced bread.
