Wow.
 
Not entirely unexpected, but still a bit surprising. +OnePlus just broke up with us over +David Ruddock's editorial.

No more review units, no invite giveaways that I promised you guys, and likely no further communication (though I hope they at least respond to technical questions).

I'm glad respecting editorial integrity and reception to criticism is high on their list of values. But remembering that part about respect at the end of http://andp.lc/1h9bXjO title, I shouldn't be surprised.
