    First of all, if anyone posted here as "your ROM sucks, use this one instead," they deserve a kick in the butt for being stupid. No doubt about it. that is just plain stupid.
    He definitely deserves 30 day vacation from forum.

    However, if a user posts that there was a problem that they are having a problem with, pointing to a user with another that does not have that problem is not necessarily a bad idea. Let me use myself here as an example.

    I got to try Sapphire after reading the interview with CVPCS on droid-life. Since then, I've been a very happy camper until I discovered a problem. I've reported(actually someone else reported it after our conversation) the problem and been waiting for a fix since then. However, that problem was such a deal breaker for me, I had to find a solution. I've tried many different things, but at the end I decided to give another rom a shot. Fortunately, that fixed the problem. So what is the first thing I do? I ran to IRC and let the devs know how I fixed the issue. Which I think would give sapphire devs to look at the difference rather than just trying to fix it. My thoughts were that it would be giving them a shortcut to a solution.

    You have a very good point here. This is exactly what I saw. Because the response from Ford would be, "Hey! stay away from our customers!" Very commercial indeed.

    This is an open community for Droid(or android). I really wish we would see more collaboration rather than completely isolating different builds.

    All it is, is asking for courtesy, nothing more. I just chose to type it out, because it seems in the android world any common courtesy grey areas are subject to exploitation.

    Problem is we don't get "hey so and so's rom doesn't this problem (or fixed said problem) maybe you could check out what they did to fix it." We get as an answer to a issue/bug "try XYZ, it's the best." I get they're probably not saying "ABC ROM" sucks, but at the same time as a community we don't want to hear it. To me if it's out in general I don't have a problem with it, but if it's in this ROMs threads, it's annoying.

    I agree it's supposed to be open, but at the same time there needs to be a level of respect for the devs that busted their ass to put this product out and the testers that dealt with all the buggy builds so that these can come out as smooth as they possibly can. When you (not you specifically...universal "you") blatantly go into their threads and offer the solution of trying another ROM it seems like a slap in the face to those people and as a community the supporters of that ROM will rise up...we're protective of our devs lol
    Of all the things I've lost,I miss my mind the most.
