People that respond to this sort of post only enable it to keep happening.

I just read on here some guy said he donated and what he was going to get for it. Like the dev owed him something.

What's his name?

Anybody who's down for donating w/o knowing where his funds are going is someone I'd like to know.

I agree. I don't know if people do this anymore but the bounty threads always end in drama. Users think a donation is more than that; a legal binding financial commitment. So when a dev doesn't come through they rage or threaten. They forget the definition of donations.

Are we all getting too picky? It's a bit like saying 'well, thank you for the offer of a free Ferrari, but I don't like the color of the cigarette lighter so for now I'll carry on walking to work.'

You are not alone with those thoughts.

Over the years XDA has grown from a site made up of just developers, to a site comprised of more users than developers.

With the increase in users comes more non-development posts.
It is a balancing act to keep XDA focused on development and the non-development chatter to a minimum.

I am no going to close this thread.

If anyone has any questions or comments please PM me.
