John Percival, co-founder of vBulletin, will be taking this opportunity to pursue other interests, and I’m sure you will join me in wishing him well and every success in the future.

John has made plenty over the years and probably made a killing just to walk away. whistle And to think... vb owes its very existence to Ted not wanting to make ubb 6.0 mysql-friendly tipsy

I wonder if there would be any sort of legality suit, considering they based their product on classic and all wink...
