Hell I'm curious now, somebody post something
Those guys are great and i love his roms but i understand why it happened.
Personally I donated a week before they started asking for update donations on their website, i replied to the thread on his site with my user name and email wanting the update saying i had just donated a week ago, then they added ... you have to donate after this date (which was a date they added after the original announcement) to get an update and when I questioned them adding that date and saying it wasn't fair ... well all my posts got deleted off that thread.
I have no problem donating to a team or person doing something good for all of us but what they did was just plain wrong. I really doubt that many people were going to their site asking for the update that had donated before their added on (donations after) date will get the updates.
EDIT: this is the first time other than on Liquids site that one day i have mentioned this as I didn't think it was worth complaining about as he and his team as always been very responsive at helping with any issues and quick, thats why i personally donated to him.

Why Root? - Because I Can
While it's sad to see Liquid kicked out of here, I can totally see where they violated the DF rules. They were clearly soliciting donations and withholding updates in order to get more money. When LGB 1.0 was released, they had updates (bug fixes) ready, but you had to donate at least $10 and only after a certain date in order to get them. I donated, because I've always loved Liquid ROMs and I thought I would help out. Then a short time later Raziel came out and said that he was looking for beta testers for themes. I responded on DF and went to Liquid's site and saw that in order to be a beta tester one had to donate. I inquired, asking if my previous donation qualified and I was told it didn't. Essentially, I would have to donate again. In my opinion, beta testers do the devs a favor and we shouldn't have to donate to get access to this. And when I brought up my issue with this on DF, my post wasn't just modded by someone on the Liquid team - it was totally deleted.
