Are you serious? Nice enough to yank it without giving anyone advanced warning, (likely) knowing that it would break numerous projects? My guess based on the timing of his article and his petty argument with kik, is that he intended to cause this commotion to draw attention to his complaint against kik. He could have give the community warning so that major projects could have switched over to another package. So no, I don't feel bad for the guy, I think he's being childish.

I had the same interpretation. "I'm gonna take my ball and go home"

"This park sucks. I'm going to another. Everyone is free to join me."

To be honest,

I really don't care either way about this situation.

I truly find humor/curiosity in the attitude of the grand parent.
