    Dear Adam:

    Long time listener – first time feedback writer. Great podcast.

    I’d like to offer another opinion about the Dash developer situation. I’m a former developer myself and I totally disagree with you on the situation.

    As a victim of fraudulent negative reviews on my one apps, I am 100% on the side of Apple in this situation. The developer should have been livid at the relative using the linked account to submit fraudulent positive reviews on certain apps and negative reviews on competing apps.

    If I were him, I would have told Apple that I was surprised that the linked account was used in this fashion and I would personnally speak to the relative and threaten to make his/her identity available to Apple if he/she does not stop. I would state that fraud is a crime punishable under the law and he/she has likely broken the law and put a significant black mark on my reputation as a developer. I would have NO PROBLEMS putting up a blog post as suggested by Apple.

    The fact that he did not do this shows that he his sympathetic towards to the relative’s outrageous actions and this is UNBECOMING of an honest developer.

    I suspect he was guilty of more than he leads on and Apple was correct in the actions taken.
