    I would have to agree a few people. Though I do understand Geo's point, although people are gonna nag no matter what. However posting pictures and videos of the iPhone 4 jailbroken in not helping any situation. If you want to be mumm about it then don't post anything, just say work in progress. But all of this is just adding more gas to an already huge fire.

    Asking for released dates, and asking, and asking again would drive most people crazy. Arguing with these idiots is also crazy.

    So how could we stop it! Realizing that MOST of the questions come from newbees who don't know how to read, or do a search and never interact until they screw up something ...... I've got a great idea.

    For certain posts, threads, or whatever .... add a MINIMUM requirement. Could be longevity, post count, moderator approval, anything. It wouldn't be perfect --- but it's a start and worth a try .

    JMHO

    Likewise he's got to deal with people that will bug him if he posts and talks publicly about his work.

    Don't jump in front of the moving car and act all upset and surprised when it hits you.

    surely you are opinionated about this guy or you would not have posted numerous times.
    And surely you are opinionated about people being opinionated- or you wouldn't have followed up each of my posts with posts of your own. I can tell it bothers you when people disagree with your thoughts on geohot (and probably everything else) but you have to understand that "don't share your thoughts" isn't a good way to deal with someone whose thoughts you disagree with.

    Just to clear things up: I realize I'm free to not read this thread or post. So you can (please) stop making that same useless point over and over again. Obviously I don't need to read this thread, that's a given. I'm here because I'm interested in the subject matter and I want to share my thoughts. I want to discuss this topic with people and see what others think. I don't demand that they agree with me, but neither do I recommend they simply not chime in if they disagree. It's called "discussion" and it's not really possible if everyone agrees with everyone else.

    So please, I've heard the "you don't NEED to read this thread" argument. Let it go. I don't need to be here, but I want to be here. I'm here to share my thoughts, learn about other people's thoughts and have a discussion. That can't happen until YOU accept other people's rights to have an opinion and stop trying to censor them, albeit politely.

    Bottom line: I'm here and until I'm banned (which I don't think is going to happen) I'm going to share my thoughts- whether you agree with them or not.

    So please, let it go and let's actually discuss geohot and not discuss why I'm discussing geohot. Okay?

    Yeah, let's silence the majority, for the sake of keeping ONE guy happy. That makes a lot of sense and it's very much in keeping with the spirit of the internet.

    Next we can post guards outside geohot's home, to make sure no one can knock on his door and ask for the jailbreak in person.

    Sorry, didn't know it was a joke.

    It actually sounds like something someone might genuinely suggest.

    I fully understand Geohot, I'd get really annoyed as well. Especially when people 'demand' that you bring out a new release, or blame you because your release screwed up their phone. Idiots.

    I won't also deny that Geo has always put himself "up there". He's nowhere near as humble as the dev-team or the rest of the developers. At least IMO anyways. He seems to like showing off and get attention.

    Either way, still good news.. err.. in a way.

    You did.

    I can't believe the hatred of some people.

    While I disagree with Mr Hotz on his release times sometimes and his lack of support resulting in lots of people having problems (a very small percentage of a very large number is still a large number), he certainly does not deserve this - as I said in the other thread, who could blame him if he stops helping people all together?
