    No problem ;)

    I went through that a few months ago. Got cornered by two girls yelling at me wanting to know why I named them by name to the supervisor about them taking so many breaks during work. I I looked at them and said I don't even go up to the front office unless they call me as I keep to myself. I I then told them furthermore how could I name you by name when I don't know your names.

    So I feel your frustration.

    A google group admin .
    Basically ,the CM porter of my phone has created a google group for the entire phone .
    Since he cant maintain a group himself he passed on the admin/mod rights to another guy .
    The guy basically has deep hate for me for some reasons since my builds are shitty for some reasons.Fair enough .(The first builds werent good but they were decent )
    So he has made it clear that the group will only support stock roms and cm . Mine has a thread on page three somewhere down where they can post doubts .

    He has three rules about english in six rules (Ironically spelling mistakes in his rules ),fourth rule for ETA( legitimate ),fifth for off topic restrictions (legitimate) ,sixth rule claiming rules I feel are good apply (Wow) .

    new users rarely navigate to page three .
    So if even the user mentions my rom ,he gets a warning .
    If he mentions overclock ,he gets a warning ,
    If he types ur instead of your ,he gets a warning
    Bad grammer ,he gets a warning
    Say "I am a noob ,please guide me " ,gets a warning .
    Today it was ridiculous .the user asked how to flash stock gingerbread .Just because he mentioned he was using my rom on froyo he was banned .
    I withdrew from the discussion last week .
    Though I used to support questions and troubleshooting regarding CM and CWM ,I pulled out last week directing users to group
    The dev is a decent chap who comments on the blog about his releases and also notifies in other forums about our releases .
    The mod is just a troll with too much power IMO .

    Damn long rant . :D

    Karandpr, if you happen to link that to say, someone similar to me with time on their hands, maybe they're could be a bit of fun to be had ;)

    Hypothetically of course...

    And how could he not like karandpr, with all the cute avatars (the polar bear was my favorite). What a jerk.

    Hhaha . That will be as fun as trolling story game. You can check my blog ,and hypothetically find the link Somewhere .but its a moderated threadd and in the end ,the new users will face the brunt.
    I can live without clockwworkmod(backup and. Restore via busybox.dd and tar ftw) or. Cyanogenmod.but people require names like cyanogen and clockwork to feel that they are using custom rom ..you will just end up pissing a good dev. The troll will be unaffected.
    End loser will be users.

    ^ I heard that a lot of CP was going around on the books. As I have only a handful of pals online, I'm unaffected. And noscript prevents any of that nonsense.

    And I don't know if I'd call it 'hacking' if someone just clicks anything without knowing what it is to...

    But yeah, I hate those kinda messages too. Even ones for good causes like cancer support, I just don't buy into all that chain mail crap. Like in the old lamespace days the bulletin thing, "If you don't post this a car crash victim will kill you in your sleep".

    Eh. People right?!

    EDIT: By the by, really diggin the gastly avatar.

    I will say that once my post count topped 300 over there, people were a lot more helpful. But yes, Sadie Lynn pegged the holier than thou for a good amount of folk. What is worse are the drama queens who start fights in the middle of popular threads - I want to see MIUI setups, not read 9 pages in a row of bickering about why its okay to steal people's work :eek: , much less do you have to give them credit when you mod it and redistribute :eek: I counted 75% of the posts for PAGES as name calling and grammar policing. People need to check their moral compasses...and while thy're at it, check their attitudes.
    Oh, and while we're on the subject - MIUI subsidiaries and international forums talking my work and posting it without cred. Not cool, and I don't speak German, so how am I supposed to tell them to not post my work on the pretense that its someone else's? And wtf MIUI Slovenia, why would you take my shit and upload it to your server instead of just posting a link to my site? What kind of jackassery seems to follow MIUI users the world over that I'm apparently immune to?

    Okay. Much better. Back to work :)

    and Sadie Lynn, do come through the home screen thread on XDA some time, some of us regulars are really awesome ;)

    ...women on topic forums with overtly suggestive avatars who contribute little to actual thread topics other than blatant flirting with any/all???

    Sorry for the snark. Just needed to vent.

    Not that I always contribute anything meaningful :p guess I'm just sensitive to the whole being taken seriously thing since I'm a chick in a male dominated industry.

    How about when someone constantly call you somebody else's name? For some reason this one friend sincerely keeps calling me "Ritchie" Who the hayale is "ritchie?"

    When you make a post and/or thread and then totally forget about it and never come across it again.

    I'm the type of person that doesn't get annoyed by much. This quote doesn't have to be aimed at me, just overhearing it annoys me. I can't stand it when someone is like "My $600 phone (no contract) can do that so much better than your $150 Prevail." Well no der, Sherlock. >_> Lol, I'm wierd like that. :p
