I admin and moderate on a number of forums using the popular vBulletin software. It is the most popular forum software. I recently came across the term nulled vBulletin. I first thought that this was a different version of the vBulletin software. I looked into in and was surprsied at a number of things. Firstly, there was my ignorance of what nulled meant – its illegal as all the licensing information has been removed. Secondly, the extent and size of the black market that is dealing in nulled vBulletin software. The risk in using a nulled version is that you get no support for it (though there are some underground forums that you can get support at) and you run the risk of your host taking teh site down in response to a complaint from Internet Brands who own vBulletin. The software only costs $195. What is wrong with that?
