Meh. Sorry that things aren't going the way you'd like them.+Szczepan Kamiński
It's not arrogance, it's confidence. Confidence because I've been dealing with Google and its "customer service" for quite some time now, longer than Android has been around. With that experience, I can tell you for a fact that there CS is as close to non-existent as a company can get. Even companies that had good CS presence before being bought by Google go this way after Google.
Therefore, I'm pretty confident in what I've said here. Don't like it? Well, you can contact Google CS about it.+Hugo Cox
Your argument about applying your definition of whining to what I'm doing is the flawed reasoning here.
They're all asking a question that has been asked of Google since day one of Android. The end result has always been the same. Silence. If these people are so smart about international business and are still left scratching their heads... well then, the answer is simple. Become "Google". Start up your own giant well known company and see how it goes. I guess you aren't aware of the phrase "You can't please 100% of the people 100% of the time."
And you're assuming I haven't walked a mile in the shoes of the excluded. That assumption is massively wrong. We're all excluded from something at some point. I've been "excluded" many times, even recently. The difference is that I don't sit here and make comments in a company thread that they'll never read and never answer.
It's also an assumption to think that just because something is put out on the internet that it is for you. If you see a suggestive photo of a woman on the internet, do you assume she wants you to come over for some fun? Do you? Because I have a bridge to sell you. I'm even willing to bet that at least half those people who clicked through to see what it was about knew before they clicked what they would find.
