Look, I am going to give you the public opinion. People accuse him of something, he vanishes for 2 days and then comes back for a quick post, saying his internet is down. Last I checked, he said he had every rom available on his desktop, so can't he install something that tethers? Even at 1x you can get on and post... to me, that was admitting he was guilty. I, in all honesty, have nothing against BD. I have spent a lot of time on this forum helping people, getting people past the idea of being scared to root their phones... When he brought a Rom here, I was excited. It was so good for DF, which is an awesome community, and has some of the coolest people. This was awesome, finally, DF would be one of the top forums. Then I saw him go to RM, then later ***** about it, and I don't know why that happened.... and from there, well, here's where we are. The thing is, I know everyone is looking down, but I know how great the mods here are. A sincere apology to the entire community could fix a lot of things, it might not get him his section back, but it would gain him a lot of respect, at the cost of a lot of his pride. Is he willing to do that? I don't want to see people leave here, that's really the only reason I got involved in the conversation. People threatening to leave, devs saying this place supports piracy, etc... Man, do you know how tough it was to get questions answered when I first rooted my phone? Everyone was like "read the faqs" but when you have questions or concerns, no one ever says "oh the google apps are still google, no one will steal your information" or something like "The update.zip can't brick your phone." Those simple answers were so much trouble elsewhere, everyone was so cool, they didn't have time for you. But... Droidforums did. I don't want a bad light on this place, you can read all the posts I have made on the subject, I understand the issue, but even on CM's blog, I defended Droidforums because the people, the mods, and the devs, are so awesome, they don't deserve this black eye.
