Fogbugz goes dark


Today I got an email titled ‘Your Manuscript Account Balance’ which said: Fogbugz was an online bugtracker developed by the much respected Fog Creek Software. They sold it some years ago when their company headed off into the stratosphere (Stackoverflow, Trello etc). I think I might have had a free Fogbugz account 10+ years ago. I tried replying to the email, telling them in no uncertain terms that they weren’t going to get a penny from me. This is the reply I got: It is sad to see someone using dark business practices to try to wring a few pennies from the corpse of a once much-respected product.
