I'm not willing to give visibility to some team disrespecting Vita community. As you can see, on VitaDB there are several closed source projects too like JellyCar or GoHANmem. They clearly stated why they took their projects closed source (OneRice07 is refactoring the code to release it opensource for example) and, first of all, they never broke several licenses (First of all GPLv3/GPLv2) differently to what ONElua staff did more and more times.
Drakon used my audio code for his JellyCar port but he asked me if could have used it in PM before starting working on the PSVITA port, ONElua team took my code several times without even crediting. Nice

They clearly stated they won't open source it cause C code is used by devs to make their own homebrews so ONElua will stay closed source. This, at least here in Italy, means they don't want to share their code even if 90% of their code came from opensource software

If you are going to be outraged at one bad thing, be outraged at all bad things
If my code is took in a closed source project breaking MY license (GPLv3) and such author doesn't give a **** about properly crediting AND doesn't ask for authorization then don't think i will stay silent
Same happened with zCheat infact months ago.
When you act like a *** being disrepectful in my towards, don't expect me to be respectful in yours.
As for AdBlocks disabling, i generally don't follow any news websites specifically so i'm not into judging them.
And such things are completely unrelated to the topic in my opinion.
