    This is what I've been saying all along, Exodus has been slowly cutting their own throat ever since 5.1 builds commenced, and I've said this even before their debacle with Content Guard began, but if that wasn't clear before it should be abundantly so now. It's been riding on the coat tails of the 5.0 builds from the get go and has yet to be able to live up to it's own standards. Perhaps if they spent a little less energy trying to impose their own will on the end user, and a little more on building a quality ROM then Exodus wouldn't have become the turd that it is..and I'm sorry, I've been dying to say this from the very first Exodus 5.1 builds but have bitten my tongue at the risk of sounding insensitive. @PrimeDirective may be at the helm of running Exodus into the ground, but bringing @raja.m into the fold was the absolute worst mistake the Exodus team ever made, that guy is so incredibly incompetent. I don't know if he intentionally hides behind the language barrier or if he really is as dense as he comes off, but I have to laugh every time a user posts an issue in the Exodus thread and he fires back with some canned response completely unrelated to the topic at hand and regurgitates his 'we are work hard to make Exodus best ROM experience' rhetoric. Mistake number two was thinking that they were too high and mighty for Team Vanir who by the way, are still over there cranking out quality builds with zero bullsh*t like they always have.

    i mean its in the rom... one doesnt agree to use it... it is forced to us... no do not agree button... it removes software without permission... tho if he removed facebook... life would be more amazing :D

    Preach on.

    No coincidence that the break from Vanir and the decay that followed happened at the same time.

    The rhetoric being spewed in defence of the piracy project on the Exodus thread is laughable.

    The real community isn't falling for the game. Real users appreciate the valuable contributions of guys like @return.of.octobot and @indest et all. We see the difference between legitimate positive contributions and subversive acts of sabotage. Different agendas are clear. Exodus ROM now synonymous with repression to me.

    While they worked on their malware you guys were fixing the active radio bug and stuff to improve the quality of the individual experience.

    The evidence is clear as day that Exodus ROM is focused on being a platform for personal agendas. The anti-user attitude is palpable. Focus has been lost there. Wrong priorities stemming from a false sense of privilege and entitlement.

    I think @PrimeDirective is full of himself....

    Just read this quote:
    I am happy OP did not offer him an early invite. Them supporting him = them supporting oppression and lack of freedom. This dude does not deserve an invite, now or never.

    I know.

    I bought three OPOs.
    One bamboo back.
    Two power banks.

    Keeping score isn't my thing.

    Kind of shows the elitist attitude I think he has. No one owes us anything. You sent them money and they shipped you working products. Transaction complete.

    This is a slap in the face to prime and I'm loving every bit of it. He is so arrogant he deserves it so much.

    Not trying to pick a fight, this just struck me as humorous when the quote is taken out of context. ;)

    I considered that as I typed it. Ironic since it is kind of hard to say I bought stuff too and I'm not saying I deserve anything because of it

    It is humorous of me to say I'm not keeping score immediately after tallying up my score. :D
