With all due respect, at the end of the day it's the internet. All you can do is report. If developers aren't staying around because a few bad apples that's their choice, oh well life is full of disappointments. If it were me, Being on a public forum I'd expect such none sense from people. Why take it to heart? People need to grow thicker skins. Some developers remind me of a teenage daddy's girl not getting their way. It's frustrating as well. No I'm not talking about the event that happened in OP, I didn't see the indecent. I mean in general for as long as I been here I've seen some dramatic dismissals. I mean no disrespect, I appreciate the hard voluntary work each puts in and I never had a problem with the way they run things. Seems logical your thread your rules. When someone neglects the rules report them. Whining doesn't seem to get us anywhere. We are a community and should work together as such by reporting and correcting peoples ways. We have moderators to correct such errors, but we can help. To be honest, I feel threads like this escalate the problem by having on more threads hiding the actual threads people are looking for. Such concerns could easily been sent to a moderator for negotiations. If the people who are fault don't search, read the post, etc..., then they aren't going to read this thread or be concerned about changing their ways. Sorry if I hurt feelings, Came off as being rude, be insensitive, cold hearted, or whatever you want to call it. I'll admit I been guilty of not always using the search, but I usually look on the first couple of pages for answers to my questions. As long as people try we'll be alright.
I hope that developer continues to develop for our phone as that thread alone looked amazing. Sucks a few bad apples ruined it, but maybe he'll come back realizing the positive impact he could have on our community. Him and other developers should know we do respect and appreciate their work.
