PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless On the day CyanogenMod moves CM10 to stable, their domain is hijacked by a community 'member'. "We don't like how this played out, and we are deeply hurt. Likewise, we are deeply saddened at the confusion this may have caused the community. We will continue to be open about the what, when, how, but unfortunately, we may never know the 'why' - though greed comes to mind. The team itself has not made a profit off of CM and that is not our goal. But to have one of our own betray the community like this is beyond our comprehension." This makes me so angry and sad. Slightly related: it's about damn time the Googles and Samsungs of this world invest some money and resources into CyanogenMod to give them a solid infrastructure to work with. It would be peanuts for them financially.

And...that makes it ok?
I'm pretty sure anyone is allowed to say whatever the hell they want about any company.
In fact, if a company did sanction this kind of behavior it's probably in legal hot water.

Never said it was okay. For a community that talks crap on corporations, and a following of anonymous hackers who uses software from said community to DDOS and worse to corporations' servers, I'm simply saying you can't hit someone and NOT expect to not be hit back. It's simple human nature, and taking a passive stance on it doesn't help.
