As a VB customer for a number of years I was happy to TRUST VB and paid for an upgrade from VB3 To VB4. Some small problems, but I wanted any extra security I could get. So far so good.
When VB 5 came out I checked and was appalled to see how IB and VB had launched an incomplete version to apparently hit a deadline with scant regard for their customers.
I think we have all seen what a total flop VB is.
Regarding the support on VB.org. Many are PAID employees of VB, some are volunteers and are to be applauded for using their own time to assist customers.
However there are major faults with the way VB.org operates. Many of the mods and admins seem more concerned with showing off about how they have the buttons and can "show" the members and VB customers who is in charge. Than actually help them.
With frequent deletions of valid comments and banning of any who they feel are not posting complimentary things about VB or them.
Two things stand out clearly: One= Some of the members and customers who complained about the crap that is VB5 were chastised in public and called stupid for actually trusting VB and purchasing their product! WTF!!!
Secondly: It was brought to the attention of the admins that they were employing as a paid staff member someone who was abusing their staff position and posting confidential information from a customer to VB support in public, on his personal website.
He was and is also allowing self confessed and known hackers and scammers to impersonate others by using a stolen photograph of the victim as their own, and not only refusing to remove this but actually supporting the hackers and scammers.
The result of the official complaint was to be politely told that I could always leave. So much for the ethics of the staff of VB.
My personal recommendation is that anyone who is thinking or purchasing any VB product look elsewhere.
