Can people help me to understand why in my opinion there is so much resistance to the BB roms by other android developers etc...). Are there politics behind rom development?
...for the O/P it is difficult for someone else to help you understand your own opinion, all the ROM Developers and Themers in the Community do awesome work and we are not going to get into a discussion of any kind concerning politics or the like of this ROM v/s that ROM or this Dev v/s that Dev -
Great question no easy answer.
You would need to poll the devs and hope for honest answers.
Based on the other ROMs i have tried BB is simply the best, so I don't care about the politics, the results speak for themselves. But that's my opinion and each user of every other ROM probably thinks the same,... yep no answers from me.
Basically what I see (or perceive) happening is a RELEASE starts getting rave reviews and it seems like all the users who have other ROMS as a favorite will come to the site getting good reviews on a release and rag on the ROM.
Doesn't matter which ROM it is... if you follow the treads of the various developers you will find that this cycle goes on and on moving from one ROM to another in a cycle.
I have a lot of varied interests and visit a lot of different forums and it's all the same no matter the topic.
What it all boils down to is everyone wants to be/have the best so they will beat down anyone who thinks another ROM, Motorcycle, Snowmobile, Skis, Board, Etc, Etc, Etc is just as good or heaven forbid... Better (gasp!)

Hey thanks for the honest and respectful opinions on an apparently touchy subject. Glad to see that these topics can be discussed without the need for censure; besides how will we ever get along?
The impetus for my op came from another thread in where someone was flamed for referring one very popular rom and in the same sentence advertised another rom. It seemed curious to me. I am a relative outsider to the community and am trying to understand some of the things I notice that make a bunch of brilliant and EXTREMELY GENEROUS guys and girls act lesser than their better selves........but maybe its their fanboys!...lol
