Default Puzzled and Annoyed - post # 001

In all my years of open source software, dating back to pre-Internet 1979, I have never seen a site more complex, convoluted and xenophobic
than this one.I installed an Android kernel.( and ran into what sure looks like a kernel crash. I wanted to inform the developer, who recommends I do so on his XDA thread. Fine. Only until I post 10 messages (which 10? on what subject?) I can not have the
privilege to talk to his majesty. Nice. Open Source Indeed. When I developed major portions of Unix, bsd, System V, Plan9, FreeBSD, and Linux,
I never encountered such snobbish, childish attitude.This is very disappointing. And please do not tell me about volumes of traffic. Real projects
that develop real technology are managing just fine and still allow any who wants to help to voice their opinion without silly rules.

Please consider what you are doing, and how.
