"As a Dota 2 player I find the Linux community downright cheerful."
i play dota2, its true

edit2: i found it
<kerio> how expensive is a hitman?
<kerio> we can pool some bitcoins
the rest is a couple jokes and general irc spam

thinking about it i can't be sure that this is what lennart was talking about, as he never stated it publicly
so bear that in mind

I think I've heard better lines on re-runs of Miami Vice...

It also seems Lennart has a beef with Linus now... Here we go again...

http://www.zdnet.com/lennart-poetter...nt-7000034384/

And he really wants to openly attack Linus and the core kernel developers when kdbus's future is in their hands? Not to say it, but really good way to promote positivity there... Everyone knows Linus enough, but geez everyone takes Linus with a grain of salt, or has learned to grow thick skin around him. If he wants a real pain in the ass he should write code for Theo at OpenBSD. Theo makes Linus look like an amateur at being an asshole.

I'm not saying the threat wasn't anything but one, but the presentation makes it almost sound pathetic and unbelievable. Plus, saying garbage like that out in general chatter in public... that's just begging for attention from the authorities.

I have been a moderator here and elsewhere for some time now. But first and foremost I am a Linux user like you. Using Linux, interacting with members of the Linux Community and contributing to Open Source Software has taught me much about technology, its dynamics and its place in the world of technology as it has taught me about myself, my relation to others as well as my place in the world of Linux.

The strength of Linux is not "just" its grab bag of stitched together technologies, no, it is a Living thing, an ecology fuelled by the passion of people using it. It is the interactions of the Linux Community that makes ideas come to fruition and creates that special bond people may have with their distribution of choice. But when it remains unchecked unbridled passion may also cause excesses. And I should know because as LQ moderator I have seen more than one death threat over the years.


You the LQ Community, LQ moderators and Jeremy all do our best to maintain an open, friendly and constructive environment. It is important that together we ensure each and everyone is able to share knowledge, discuss all aspects of Linux and mostly everything else and generally have a good time. Everyone may voice his or her opinion, and without fear of repercussion. However some of us seem to think that there is no threshold and that they should be allowed to spread FUD unchecked, incessantly post the same agitprop, make direct attacks on Real Life persons, openly wish a person to die or agree with that statement by means of posting or marking such a post as "helpful". Such actions, calculated, openly inciting, devoid of any respect, in a thread on a clearly controversial topic, do not only damage the credibility of LQ members but more importantly it damages the good atmosphere and all that LQ stands for, the Linux Community as a whole as well as this distributions forum and its users.


As a clear signal to the LQ Community I have, after long and careful deliberation, taken the extreme measure to ostracise four LQ members for the duration of one month, during which I will take the time to "educate" them on the finer points of the LQ Rules, netiquette and common sense. What is more important however is, as a clear signal from you to the LQ Community, how your distributions management and you will act from here on. Should you or your distributions management have any questions about this then you are invited to constructively discuss things with me by email.


Cordially,
unSpawn
