That guy is a moron.
Where to begin.
1. XDA is not a software company, it is, in fact, a forum. So to attack its "forum like organization"...just sounds stupid. It's like saying "look at that freaking tea kettle, brewing tea, how dare it!" This wasn't set up, intended for or was ever thought to be a business-type, engineering/programming atmosphere. It's a chill spot, like a beach, for nerds who love their smartphones. It's 2012, grow the hell up.
2. XDA is driven by user generated content, not by employees. ROMs, kernels, tweaks, mods, themes, etc are done by people like teachers, writers, auto mechanics, etc etc. It's a hobby for us. To give them crap for not following proper programming documentation is simply wrong (although everyone who releases a kernel must follow the rules of the GPL, that's a given). These people aren't engineers and don't have degrees in this stuff (well, most don't :P ), they're hobbyists. To attack them is to attack the spirit of XDA: which is caring, sharing and enjoying yourself. This is not a business, to assume that it should be run like one is asinine.
This guy is a dirtbag and a blowhard. This is a giant, dysfunctional, international family of people who just happen to love their smartphones. We tweak things as we like them, release them for whoever wants to try them and just hang out and discuss stuff. That guy is the next door neighbor who hates loud music and hot chicks doing keg stands on his lawn.
Ignore him, he's just angry because things aren't exactly to his specifications and he wants a rise out of everyone. He's what the interwebz calls a "troll".
