Google It was inevitable, of course, and rightfully so: Google is having its big I/O conference, so we have to talk about the lack of Honeycomb's source code. While not violating any licenses, the lack of source code doesn't sit well with many - including myself - so it only makes sense people are asking Google about it. Andy Rubin confirmed we're never going to see Honeycomb's sources as a standalone release. He also explained what 'open' means for Android.

I hope I’m not being unfair here. I mean, I know this guy is a nuisance to many, but this response is even more annoying than he is.

Are you honestly criticizing somebody for leave their comment in the “comment” section? Are you honestly criticizing somebody for just leaving comments in the “comment” section and not pretending like it’s also a forum or a place for discussion? Are you honestly criticizing somebody who apparently hasn’t changed his mind on topics for expressing those opinions on any article that seems relevant to him?

Don\'t be such a drama queen. Oh, by the way, yes. I\'m criticizing him for not engaging in ANY discussion, and wasting everybody time. Now I don\'t really mind him actually. He is hilarious sometimes (in kinda sad way). But lots of people make genuine attempts to inform him, and all those attempts are wasted on him. Posting the same shit repeatedly in every f--king thread about Google with zero attempt to actually discuss and engage = trollish behaviour. Maybe you haven\'t noticed, but people are having discussions here - regardless of how you call this place (comment section or forum - who cares?).

edit> Note that I\'m not saying Thom is right here. I\'m saying his annoyance is understandable, that\'s all - so yeah, your response is way over the top. I don\'t see a reason for banning him for all time and shouting about it. Thom had it\'s own share of feeding him for sport, even though he probably never reads any replies. Most old timers just ignore him. OTOH he does bring down the level of discussion on this site - which might be a legitimate reason for banning him. Disagreeing with me or you or anybody is not the problem. Saying something to the effect that \"everybody is stupid who doesn\'t see what I see\" (paraphrasing here) without 1) bothering to elaborate 2) with some elaboration (which can be actually worse) - now that\'s a problem I think.
