After catching wind of the story in several news outlets, I decided to go after the source of the turmoil: a remarkably long thread at howardforums.com.

RANT! Why Is Developing For BlackBerry Such A Pain?

I know I can’t speak from direct experience but this point just keeps on getting raised. The creator of BBSmart, Neil, wrote a whole rant about his experiences with developing themes for BlackBerry.
