Here's a response to the "NubiNews falls victim to political pressure" comments in Android Market.
Not everything is about politics. We stopped distributing HK/Taiwan/US news because an HK publisher threatened to sue us. We have too little money and too little time to fight them in court.
Most non-mainland-China sites were already blocked by the Chinese firewall. There was no point for the Chinese government to take on NubiNews, as NubiNews does not have any firewall-breaking capability. Plus, NubiNews developers all live outside of China so we don't really care what the Chinese government thinks.
So here it goes. If you need to find someone to hate in this incident, pick the lawyers.
It's time to stop being too simple, sometimes naive.
P.S., we are working on a solution to separate (a) NubiNews the reader app, and (b) the contents. This will allow 3rd party developers to post their favorite sites onto NubiNews. Hopefully this will be done in a few weeks. In the mean time, please be patient and feel free to explore other wonderful readers out there :-)
