I have seen you called out on this before. Learn to respond properly and try treat your potential customers with more respect. Did you really need to moan about the originality of the post and use pathetic "lmao" jibes.

Maybe take some pr training, you need it.

Ok, after 2 minutes of laughing, I am able to type again.

Since when do we need to educate the devs about behaviour? And how many times has a forum member pissed off a dev who hadn't the chance to answer properly and swallow every insult/trolling/insolence? No, it's always the old "your customer is king"-attitude. But respect only works BOTH ways. Have you read the postings BEFORE Rubicon answered? Some people are only able to dish out but can take nothing. But what goes around, comes around. And when a dev finally gives you a deserved telling-off, you guys start to pout. Respect, on the other hand, needs to be earned. I have a completely other job than Rubicon - but if somebody tries to step on my toes, I can only hope that the person can take the answer. I really wonder that most devs stayed calm so far. If somebody would come up to you and tell you that your product you've worked on hard for a year is not even worth 3 bucks, I'd really like to see you reaction.

We should now rename "touchArcade" to "touchyArcade".

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Any dev that says they know about this is most likely lying. If Apple has indeed been showing this thing off, it'll probably be just to the bigger developers with something to lose if they break the ironclad NDA they'll have to sign.
