@measlytwerp - do whatever you like! Nobody is stopping you. Idiot.
@measlytwerp - You can accept it or reject it. I'm not trying to convince anyone. I shared my opinion in a blog post and here.
Feel free to disagree or write a post to diss it. As you wish.
@measlytwerp - Yes it's my opinion and I believe that those who are enforcing such a crap are not looking for success of Linux.
They have hidden agendas like what have been shown previously many times. I gave you bunch of links.
To me they are not the best coders. To you they might be god.
Again it's my opinion and I'm not saying it as a fact.
@measlytwerp - if you have difficulty to digest what I'm saying. I can't make it simpler for you.
The bottom line is: I'm not interested in playing identity politics. And keep politics out of hacker community. That's all. I don't need to prove anything. This is what I like to say and you are free to accept or reject it. That's it.
People who feel offended or feel as you like to call it "abuse" can form their own community. Or adapt to it.
@measlytwerp - you are twisting my words. I didn't say they "worth" or not.
I'm saying they can chose either to adapt to the community culture or form their own.
Nobody stops them.
@measlytwerp - prove what? The hidden agenda?
What about starting from this:
@measlytwerp - I said before, if someone is competent enough, he will fork the project and move on. He won't act like a crybaby.
This CoC itself has no problem but the hidden agenda behind it is a problem.
@measlytwerp - At this context it matters. Otherwise, the reader thinks Linus added the CoC himself. He just approved it as a maintainer.
There is no evidence that he will back. He said but he may or may not.
@measlytwerp - all FOSS projects are the most democratic. You can fork it and do whatever you want. What else do you need?
The best coders could go their own way instead of destroying the community that at the moment nobody's know what's gonna happen and big enterprises are crapping their pants.
@measlytwerp - Linus didn't commit it. He approved it and so-called merged it.
He approved on 16th and a day after that, 17th, call it quit
@measlytwerp - And why contributors treat to pull out their codes?
@measlytwerp - Did majority demand for it or the minority forced their way through? If everything is good why the situation is chaotic? Why Linus left?
Maybe I am not aware but give me a link to back your claim.
@measlytwerp - My logic is very simple. All I'm saying is if I can't adjust myself to a community culture, I will move on. Let me give you an example to help you understand.
If I move to a country and found that people there are not culturally compatible and I feel "offended" or "abused", I will move out of that country and go somewhere. Not putting the guns on the head of people there and force them to adapt to what I like.
That's called invasion.
If the people who are imposing the CoC were best coders, they wouldn't have time for such a nonsense. They could have come up with a better thing. Or developing their own kernel, maybe!? Not destroying a community where contributors treat to pull their codes out.
The maintainer, Linus, ran away, and yes he's mean and rude. But is Linux doing better now?
There is no excuse for that.
Again you are unhappy with how people talk to you in the community, fork the project and move on
@measlytwerp - And what was the problem of the code of conflict that had to be replaced with the code of conduct?
@measlytwerp - By the way it's a terrible idea to use words such as "abuse", "toxic" in a context where at most certain people say mean things or simply troll people.
@measlytwerp- There is no need to force everybody to follow what they don't like and put the future of the project in jeopardy and at the same time make the creator of it to "run away".
I'm damn sure those who are enforcing this crap are not even competent enough to maintain the project for a month.
People should grow up and not act like a crybaby all the time and not get offended easily.
@measlytwerp - I just can't recognize the picture you're painting.
What kind of abusive are we talking here? What toxic atmosphere? Is it more toxic now or before?
As I have said before many times to different people, Linux kernel is an free/open source project. Anyone who is competent enough and doesn't like whatever about it (whether is a code or language), can fork it and add his own things to it.
