Re: Some twat
"Think about why you're upset. It's on you."
And there it is, after all the hand-waving, the "yeah we really aren't going to listen to anyone who disagrees with us".

You're being a deliberately obtuse pseudo-intellectual. Merit in this case is derived from creating code that meets the requirements of the software, be it in being bug-free, speed of production, speed of execution, use of resources, quality of documentation or extensibility/maintainability (or any combination of the above).
If you're contributing to an open-source project, chances are nobody has the foggiest idea whether you're gay or straight. Nor do they give the slightest of fucks. You need to learn to offer that same respect to others. I suspect the reason you're having conflicts with everyone (and it does seem that you are) is that you are yourself the source of the conflict due to your shitty attitude.
Disagreeing with you does not make someone a bigot. Unfortunately, there is a section of society that believes it does. Wrongthink must be punished. Ironically the most bigoted people out there are the very people pushing this stuff, judging everyone by the colour of their skin, the arrangement of their genitalia and what they like to do with that genitalia (and with whom). Still, if it makes you happy to call people bigots, have at it.
You know what I mean, my point is that google maps was pointing the wrong way most of the time, as was the compass app. The point is that the phone was unfit for purpose. It was clearly faulty as who the hell would sell a phone that doesn't know which way you're facing? That's just ludicrous for a bunch of reasons such as google maps, AR apps, etc. My new Xiaomi on the other hand, works like a dream.
@Ledswinger - I'll echo your comments on support - I bought a Sony Xperia.. never again. Took 3 months of faff with their broken website and support droids on social media, web chat and phone all denying any kind of problem (touchscreen not working at the edges, GPS pointing in entirely the wrong [random] direction, dodgy connectivity) before they finally took it in for repair. It came back a month later still broken. Lesson learned, Sony are now verboten in the Twat household.
I have a Xiaomi Mi A2 and it's bloody lovely. Cost a mere £180 and it's spot on. No notch, excellent camera, nice loud speakers, decent battery, performance is plenty good enough, stock android, exactly what an old fart like me is looking for in a phone.
EDIT: Obviously I avoid doing anything sensitive on the device, but then I follow the same practice for any mobile phone due to Chinese manufacturing, government surveillance, etc.
As ever, the Social Justice left (aka the creature wearing the left's skin, for unlike the actual left they utterly despise the working classes) are jumping on a cause and lecturing people - the thing is that in every fucking case it's people who contribute fuck all, who aren't interested at all in the thing they're trying to change, who just get on Twitter, see a fucking hashtag controversy and try to fuck shit up. Fuck em.
I used them because of the music locker which was a pretty decent deal, and when I signed up the web interface didn't completely suck. Then the interface gradually got worse, uploading music became increasingly irritating and they finally killed the locker service, all while having duplicate albums all over the place and removing songs from the service at an alarming rate. I decided that I'd quite like to actually own my music (which I've bought from a variety of sources) and stream it to my devices so I set up my RasPi to do that job for me. Sorted.
