I don't think a personal attack is helpful or necessary.
The reason I highlight the user interface features of xenforo is because they make that forum system popular.
Threads appeared on Invision Power Board's customer forums, for example, with many of their users saying "I love that 'like' feature" or another common one "the 'alerts' are really neat, and addictive!".
If phpBB is going to be squarely targettted at being the highest-security forum software, then naturally some usability features would not be implemented.
If phpBB wants to be a modern, appealing and addictive forum system from the user's perspective (ie. not from the developer or webmaster perspective), then some of the clever UI tweaks in xenforo should be considered as default features for the next generation of phpBB.
I am not attacking in any way but writing down constructive criticisms. FOA.
Last but not least, a part of all the rest you posted and I above quoted: at the moment I can say I do not want to discuss and make further speeches about a project it is not really free, I mean Open-source or the like.
