The truly uniquely bright ones usually have limited tolerance for passive aggressive dances by insecure, less capable people, especially when they're on deadline. As someone who is not one of these uber techs, I have found that being blunt and direct back to them usually puts a shocked smile on their faces. They're happy to have found a coworker who is more interested in efficient communication over warm'n'fuzzy oprah tingles.

theodp (442580) writes "Bleacher Report's Gabe Zaldivar is stupefied to learn that MLB Commissioner and successful adult Bud Selig has never sent an e-mail in his 78 years on Earth. "It's one thing to be a 78-year-old person out of touch with new technology," writes Zaldivar, "but this is the commissioner of Major League Baseball. Is he still sending letters through the post office? Does he get baseball scores through ticker tape or telegram?" Selig, adds BusinessInsider, 'is actually just one of a handful of notable sports figures who've gone on the record to say they don't use email. Michigan football coach Brady Hoke, Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim, and ESPN commentator Chris Berman all don't use email.'"

"The fact Linux is awesome and Linus is an abusive and profane manager doesn't mean the profanity and abuse is necessary to make Linux awesome."

No. But the fact that Linus is sometimes abusive, plus the fact that he thinks that sometimes he has to be abusive, plus the fact that he leads no less than Linux as a testament to his management abilities does mean something.

He has a theory, he practices it and he has success backing him. You have a theory and... what else?

So, basically, the Steve Jobs management model strikes again. First at Apple, and again for Linux.

Of course, the thing is, the Steve Jobs method of being an asshole only works for certain people with certain personality traits. For Jobs, it was his charisma and RDF. For Linus, it's practically hero worship - after all, he created a very useful piece of software.

Of course, there's also a whole pile of people who are put off by such tactics - after all, having physical violence threatened or being cursed out can make one question their motivations. For there are legions of people who were put off by Jobs' assholeishness and many who quit after being chewed out by Jobs (and these people were, for the most part, leaving dream jobs that paid decently - they just couldn't stand the verbal abuse Jobs would dish out).

Will it affect anything? Well, Apple's still around and didn't collapse while Jobs was at the helm, and Linux won't either - the long time people have grown used to it, the newbies know what to expect, and everyone else just works away quietly on their fork of the kernel. And yes, there are tons of forks to the kernel - after all, every Android phone releases a kernel, yet I'm sure 99.99% of those patches never make it back into mainline.

Sarah Sharp is not a new person on LKML. She's the USB3 host controller maintainer. She's been there for a while, and she totally overreacted. Linus' original message was a tongue-in-cheek one talking about Greg Kroah-Hartman (who is a fairly large guy while Linus is not):

"Have you guys *seen* Greg? The guy is a freakish giant. He *should* scare you. He might squish you without ever even noticing."

Sarah's reaction was, "Seriously, guys? Is this what we need in order to get improve -stable? Linus Torvalds is advocating for physical intimidation and violence..."

Anyone who takes Linus' comments as a serious suggestion needs their head examined. It was *clearly* meant as a joke.

Let me guess: all good and dandy until some parents will sue the ISP for "having their kids accidentally exposed by a hole the filter" (as in "letting the kid find a way to bypass the filter and try get some money from the ISP").
Then the idea of "default-on filter" will be busted for good (or, alternatively, the Internet as seen by UK will look like a puny list of white listed sites, all the others censored).

There's no engineering in your proposal. It's just an off-the-cuff suggestion.

I'm not offended by abusive language but if I was too offended, I wouldn't join a volunteer organization where I was subjected to such language.

That said, my view of Linus overall is reduced by his apparent inability to express himself effectively and influence without using abusive language.

My view of Jobs was much reduced by his bullying of his employees - it was probably his right to do so, but bullying just isn't effective. It's more effective to explain calmly and clearly what the employee is doing incorrectly and what the correct behavior is. If a person isn't smart enough to understand a calm explanation, you don't want them working for you and you should just fire/demote/transfer them - bullying won't solve the problem.

It's something people assume of left-handed people. Most of the time it's assumed that left-handed people are libertarian or liberal-leaning political individuals, which automatically means that the person making the assumption is a right-wing political individual. That bias automatically boils down to "different == sinful/evil".
It's kinda cute :-)

Meh, what's another $1000 a year to live in the Golden State.

Given than it's sunny SoCal, you might look into getting solar panels for your roof, if you have one handy. Depending on financing, the price may be lower than what you're paying now (or what you will be paying in September), and even if it's not, at least the costs will be 100% predictable -- the incidence of unexpected stator corrosion in solar arrays is vanishingly small. ;)

Technically most of the Europe has not so much "free speech" as "privileged speech". I.e. most of the speech cannot be banned unless it meets very certain criteria (nazi propaganda for example). In some countries it works quite well. In some, not so much.

But arguing that it's a "joke", you may wish to compare UK right to free speech to one in USSR or DPRK for example. It most certainly is NOT a joke.
