I agree with Randy, all hacking needs to stop, everyone needs to just live their own life, and stop trying to ruin another persons.

Android, Apple, Microsoft, etc. there are builders and there are people who just want to tear things apart. This can be a good thing as that is also how we evolve and do better.
