re: SMS/Call Bombing using TBomb for linux distribution and Termux VIEW POST


This is possibly interesting from a code point of view, but to "prank" your friends? It seems a little mean. There's not really a legitimate use for software like this.

As they say on their Github page, use of software such as this has resulted in real problems:

Due misusing of TBomb, several API's died

That's disingenuous; it's not "misuse" of an application to use it in the way it's designed. They could have written "Due to the use of..." instead, really, couldn't they? Anyway, they've spoiled the use of some APIs for other aspiring developers.

I think we should be careful what we do, and treat open resources with respect. A lot of developers enjoy the ability to run small projects on the free tier of Google Maps, for example. If someone wrote a similar app that ran against their API and Google took the free tier away, everyone's worse off.


Thank you for your comment, I agree with you and your point of view. Especially the last para made it meaningful.
