    It seems like PFW should have its own Wilders section since it has gotten so popular and they don't have their own forum anywhere else (I think).

    Im sure the other companies like Eset and Javacool dont just get their own forums here. Im sure there are some sort of vendor payments that need to be made. I cant see the owner just offering a free forum up for Private FW.

    Not really sure why they would need a forum section either. They have support offerings on their site along with tutorials that physically walk an end user through configuration.

    Yes, otherwise I could hardly see, for example, why the real need to having this Colasofts'thingy forum branch around here...

    Good point about the arrangements.

    Regarding the need... one word: community.

    If PFW was concerned about community they would have their own forum. :rolleyes:

    Ergo, any vendor that doesn't have their own forum isn't concerned about their community of users?

    Vendors that can t manage a forum should not make it.I remember the days of BD forum when BD forum wasnt under the product support supervision :) It was a nightmare.As Privacyware is not a big company who would take care of it properly ?!

    Having a forum doesnt really mean that the vendor really cares about the users.Presonally i prefer product enhancements as feedback instead of a useless forum.The feedback PF users give right here for free should be good enough.

    In my opinion, a forum for PFW is not very likely because:

    + PFW's replies to support tickets are fast, friendly, & effective. Ergo, a support forum is a solution to a non-existent problem.

    + PFW is a free product from a company with no home-use product to advertise or sell*. Ergo, Privacyware has no commercial incentive for enduring the botheration of dealing with the rants, whines, & unreasonable demands that often accrue to support forums -- especially (for some odd reason) to support forums of freeware products.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    *Privacyware's NON-free products are targeted to enterprises -- security of servers, etc.

    I was thinking of the forum as being more a place for the inmates to congregate. :p

    Totally agree that PFW's customer service is beyond excellent (and responsive). :thumb:
