Once a great CMS becomes one to avoid

E107 was once great, easy to work with and had a good community. Now it's a JOKE!!!! All communications and support have been shut off.
I do a search for help on E107, and ALL searches take me to the main page. No longer to the great forum and community that once was. OLD users are left high and dry. The remnants of a forum are left read-only, IF you can even find it. No other way to get support.
I picture lemmings, falling off a cliff. I was one of them.....
I wasted 10 years learning and using E107. Following it. Contributing. Now, all previous support, community, etc.. is GONE. RUN from this CMS and don't look back. Patterns are called patterns for a reason. It will happen again to this new version as long as it's run the same way as it always has been. E107 may look good up front, but the wizards behind the curtain are idiots. They've destroyed a community., removed support, and ignore any communication. RUN!!!
There were signs, I just didn't want to see it. Great support was replaced by silence. Or Sarcastic help that drove users away in droves. More and more of the good moving on.... I should have seen it coming..... Look at the team size!!! Almost nothing now, where once it was full of smart, energetic and communicative programmers.
I HATE I wasted so much learning this, only to be sent to a dead end. Seems they want to forget about the OLD versions and community and start fresh. Maybe let someone else do Support and just slowly make a new version. Yet they still look for donations, without supplying the long term help. I hate to watch this epic fail in progress.
I wish I could buy this so-called "e107, Inc" and run it like a business SHOULD be run. But I am afraid it's too late.
Time to move on. But it's so aggravating. In the RIGHT hands, this CMS HAD amazing potential. That's what hurts.
