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

i like you

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.
