Seriously why is it that I am downvoted for asking questions that present programmers in a negative light? Are we supposed to shy away from asking the more difficult questions?
I am trying to understand how the android permission system works. Now I happened to ask the names of application or a way we could produce one that was capable of bricking the device. It turns out, that people are not comfortable sharing information like this because of trust issues, some voice their opinions and others just downvote the question!
So the motive is to, "Let no one ask the hard questions which compromise security" or is it to, "Let the questions be asked so that we are all more aware and cautious about our security"?
