I kinda see this whole situation as Math being like the kid who always got picked on at school who grew up to be a huge success and now people are jelly. As the article says, love him or hate him, he does have skill. Unless someone personally attacks you, you have no place to talk smack. Especially someone you've never met a day in your life.. I have no problem admitting hes light years ahead of myself in code cracking department.
If I recall correctly it is illegal to give information on how to crack/hack/mod a system or product and especially the way $ony has trying to crack down, you can't blame the guy for not wanting to divulge his methods, especially after sifting through page after page of "WHERES CFW. CRACK THIS GAME. YOU SUCK." etc. I even get annoyed reading it.
Granted theres some things hes said that I don't agree with and I'm not trying to put him on a pedestal but this scene needs to grow up. None of the devs owe us anything, the least we can do is show a little respect to the people who take time out of their lives to help others. Sorry for the tl:dr but you seriously can't insult someone to the ground and then expect them to do you a favor.
