    nah, so far we are keeping things civil and just discussing are own opinions on it without attacking the other person :)
    i can agree with you on that, and i am not a developer either, but we do end up caught in the crossfire sometimes, and you are right they aren't getting paid but people do donate to them (which isnt part of it though), i think the bigger issue like somebody else already said is that some of these guys have been around for a while and when they see that there hard work is being used in somebodies elses rom and aren't getting any credit for it they look at it as somebody stealing there work.

    just my two cents.

    Edit: @Jim, if our signature wasn't acceptable you'd let those people know correct?

    So taking donations on someone else work is okay then?

    I am a developer and I don't take kindly to people taking work as their own whether it's open source or not (this has happened to me before). It's really a problem when your given no recognition or credit and the other person on top of that ask for donations for "his" sweat and tears.

    Some of us just happened to like the ROM. Bottom line for me.
    Had nothing to do with sources and what not for me.

    I myself can understand all sides and don't know enough about what's gone on to comment nor do I want to know.

    I just hope it gets resolved properly... whatever that may be.

    Meanwhile, I wish this somber feeling in the forums would stop and it'd be fun again :)

    It's probably not going to because there are a lot of people who feel that this isn't being handled fairly by the admins, and that's a shame.

    So, basically the section was closed because of flooding from those supporting a ROM of a different color...the reason for the flooding was the perception that credit was not given where credit was due.

    It seems that opinions regarding this get pruned fast...so hopefully I'm allowed to state my concern that BlackDroid has now been the center of massive drama on two occasions...

    I do not want to point fingers right now,
    those who's sig is not acceptable knows who they are,
    as they have modified it recently to reflect current events here on DF.

    I Don't want to get into a PM war either.
    I am only asking nicely, To Clean up Sigs,

    NeverEndingXsin, Yours is ok !

    I just don't understand why credit is more important than the cause.
