It's another day, and another antagonizing post from the Cyanogen CEO, Kirt McMaster. An antsy OnePlus One owner was complaining about the fact that Cyanogen missed the planned deadline to bring Lollipop to the OnePlus one, and McMaster responded with the above Twitter post, suggesting people should "calm the f down."
OnePlus also shared that the problem wasn't that the update wasn't finished, but that it got stuck in the certification process longer than anticipated. This didn't seem to damper folks' impatience with wanting to get the update on their devices.
While it's an easy argument that owners should consider being a bit more patient with the update, it seems like McMaster could have handled it with more civility. Potentially alienating your fan-base with abrasive statements isn't the best way to engender good will. It seems like the Cyanogen CEO's brash behavior is becoming a habit. What do you think?
