Some of us are destined to always be on the outside looking in while others on the inside pass comment with cryptic meaning only making sense to the insiders. 8 pages ive read of rumours and comments but not yet has SMF simply put a proper lid on it all and made a sensible post or locked this chinese whisper.

The 2 random FAQ questions are they some kind of clue to whats gone on since they directly relate to smf being paid for and licencing.The post is so vague it is almost pointless to be posted and is only fueling a lot of speculation.

Has the team had some kind of power struggle behind the scenes with this thread making it out to us members ?
Are we going to see other smf sites spring up out of nowhere with team from here now going solo ?
Somebody wants to see $$$ for smf development?
Is this thread really a croc of crap and nothing bad has happened?
Is the team going to address this post or lock it as suggested and give a real explanation?
Are we supposed to just ignore this thread started by a team member?

In all the time ive used smf ive never seen a post along this line with such a wierd OP followed by another half hearted explanation only after everyones guesses and ideas to whats going on.Ive had a lot of thoughts over smf since seeing this thread and hope this is all a storm in a teacup but somone from the team needs to step up to the plate and take real responsibility and post a clear enough post so were not all second guessing from random cryptic comments..

This was so un-called for. Have you ever heard of freedom of speech? Posts like yours, make you look like an idiot and ass kisser. And Smf right now doesn''t need those (ass-kissers)

P.s. I found Owdy''s post funny btw. As they say, a picture is worth 1000 words ;)

@ nightbre
That's exactly right.

@babjusi
I think stikkki just demonstrated his freedom of speech. The wording of it may have left a bit to be desired, but the point is still the same. There is no clause that says freedom of speech "only when I agree with it".

actually it wasnt un-called for - people want proper discussion and direction to the thread to get clear understanding and not people having little snipes and making comments about people and posting stuff about the "truth is out there" based on personal greivances...... how is it helping the situation posting more cryptic comments and images that are clearly ment to have meaning and are directed at certain quarters without stepping up and saying what you mean and being direct about the situation at hand

im sorry but people need to grow up and stop acting like kids - if there are legitamate greivances and people have something to say then say it, ive seen the snidey comments around, ive seen the backstabbing, had the spam emails...... enough is enough lets just get things out in the open and deal with this situation, this is as much the SMF bigwigs fault as anyone elses, bring in the top brass and let them give us the heads up on whats happening, what plans are and where all this is leading to

ok folks. Since this has gotten seriously off topic and is quickly degenerating, I am going to lock the thread.  I made a post, which got buried, about 3 pages back with as clear an explanation as you are currently going to get.
The original post (which has since been modified) was created to address some rumors.
We have done so. There are still things happening in the background, but nothing that need concern any SMF supporters at this time.

If there is any cause for concern, I will make sure you hear about it.

So... on about your business you...  move along, move along...
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support forums.  Thank you.
