WTF? This Wikipedia entry reads like free advertising for the hosted Vanilla Forum service, particularly the section "Features" which mostly talks about the commercial service, not the free product. I expected information about the open source edition of Vanilla Forum, i.e. the free product, not the commercial business behind it. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 15:35, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Keep, But Edit
Value: This article quickly answered a lot of head-scratching questions I had about Vanilla.
Notability: Vanilla apparently manages half-a-million forums worldwide, it is independently recognized as a significant player.
Writing: Poor, self-promotional in some places. Edit. ("Delete and make them rewrite from scratch" is a terrible policy, it's easier to prune than plant a whole new tree.)
It is quite normal in an encyclopedia, whether in a portal, or not, to mention all aspect of the entry.
Like many OS project Vanilla is partly funded by SaaS, which is the hosted solution.
I think on balance it now mentions the OS Vanilla in good measure.
I should point out anything not distributed the licence is moot. It is only some licences like AGPL that say otherwise.
