As an aside to @Codesavage message on google store TOS,
"ms buys github" ... what happens when ms decides:
- items on github violate their TOS, or
- usage of something from github could lead the user into violating ms TOS, or even
- if something on github promotes/advantages a competitors product over a ms product.
(allowing the last could be considered violation of responsibility to their shareholders)
sure, yes, ms have said they will play nice and are supposedly 'pro open, pro linux and others' - but that is nearly always only if:
it's running in a ms-windows [limited] [linux] environment (posb not native capable), or, even if it makes they underlying os irrelevant open source products become heavily reliant on underlying ms products / infrastructure - need ms proprietary dev tools and/or for release/deploy proprietary ms libs (IOW not ever native).
so, is ms really 'open source' friendly? or are they just leading developers into an 'open source' world that ms can one day easily shut down and charge money to turn it back on?
looking deeper into the way they are infiltrating open source it's nearly always to [deceptively] inject ms widgets and reliance on ms into everything that comes out.
heck, will even git itself remain accessible to open source git tools, or are they going to 'extend' proprietize that too?
"ms buys github" - I really hope people jump, but more likely laziness will prevail.
... and who knows what's next? buy CP and SO to 'even further support the community' [roll it into msdn and] monetize that too?
This internet thing is amazing! Letting people use it: worst idea ever!
are they just leading developers into an 'open source' world that ms can one day easily shut down and charge money to turn it back on?
As github has always been a closed environment (i.e., it was funded by VC who had all the power), that could have happened at any time. I don't really see Microsoft taking a dump in the sandbox at any time.
MS is just fine with providing free and open-source material at the individual level as long as they can monetize it at the corporate level. That's been the business model for many, many years, and is exactly the business model that GitHub follows as well.

Hey! Guys I need your help!
Last week my app was deleted from Play Store, the claim was that it violates spam policy with repetetive content. I tried to get in touch with console, but they said that the app is banned from store again with claim of repetitive content. They did not explain where in my app the policy was violated, leaving me wondering, what just happened and what was wrong with my app. Can you guys please could maybe explain what could be wrong with the app, so that maybe hypothetically I could understand the ban.
This actually left me wondered that basically Google can do anything without any explanation, just say that the policy have been violated and point- ban from the store.
Oh sorry! It was bitcoin trading simulator for beginner investors, It was like school where people can learn to trade with real time trading simulator with no risk. It was basically an app that was based on our online platform-
They just reffered to their spam policy without any specific explanation, but the thing was that we were only one on the app store that provided something like this. Plus we send a second letter that we would like to hear detailed explanation, what was wrong but they just said that they already explained everything.
Surely the method should return something absurd as well? It'd be absurd if it didn't. We'll need a new data type too!
