Wow, that was an incredibly defensive comment.

The ##logs# trick has been around a long time if you previously owned a palm webOS phone - so you MAY have learned it from someone else, but it isn't something an average user just "figures out" on their own. Furthermore, you reference several of codecrumb's patches in your article, demonstrating that you -have- seen his work, and likely his exact post detailing these fixes. Put 2 and 2 together and you get 4.
He's asking for a shoutout to where you got your info. None of your information would be available without the people here (and especially codecrumb). Hell, as he's said, several of the patches you reference wouldn't even exist if it wasn't for his efforts. I don't think he was trying to question your integrity, I think he just wanted a little recognition.
But instead, codecrumb is clearly out of line and your journalistic integrity is too great to have written -anything- that didn't come from your own brain 100%. You're not standing on anyone's shoulders here, you're a giant among men. Since you're clearly a whiz at these things, can I get you to write a few new patches? There's a feature or two I'd like my touchpad to have and you are clearly a touchpad wizard.
