Some sites are using older versions of vBulletin, and they're doing perfectly fine.

I'm a member of a large forum that's still using 3.0.14

They were hacked so badly back in 2002 (they weren't using vB at the time) that they had to start the forum again from scratch and everyone had to re-register.

They obviously weren't keeping up with security updates back then. And, it looks like they're making the same mistake again.

Probably only a matter of time before they're hacked once more.

Loads, you'd be surprised actually. 3.6.9 doesn't bring any major security revisions to the table, it's just a slight tightening up here and there.

Yeah... I'm very sorry to say I don't think I trust the mods here to behave themselves with this one. As a former mod myself it has to be treated very carefully and I can think of plenty of situations where it could well be misused due to personal grudges and plain crap judgment, I think if it were possible to make the delete-everything feature available to the Admin usergroup only (i.e. only David can do it) then it would be okay; but then again if only one person can do it and it's so rarely necessary, that kind of defeats the point of having it.

As I said in another thread it's bad enough when somebody gets perma-banned on a whim without consulting anyone else and David has to go the trouble of lifting the ban if he thinks it's wrong, causing infighting amongst the mods... completely deleting the user and their entire posting history means there's no going back apart from restoring from backup. Nope, this is too dangerous and it's just as stupid to allow this for the mods as it is to allow raw HTML to be embedded. Bollocks to time saving, David can already do it near instantaneously from the Admin CP if he needs to... the mods most definitely don't need to.
