"For some strange reason, my communications style seems to get the point across without much offending assorted people on several different continents. I submit it as an existence proof. "

That's a dubious claim, because you have offended the fuck out of my sensibilities many times over the years.

" The LKML could be driving away a lot of talented people, and we'd never realize it without someone who mentions it on her way out."

And that is a perfectly acceptable loss, because it has the intended effect of driving off 1000 idiots for every 1 talented person. They don't need every talented person, just a quorum.

No. You don't understand. You asked me a question, providing no context, and expected me to accept your claim that " a critical bug that completely hang the system with probably any distribution kernel since years". Of course, I have been using the kernel for years, using many distributions and it never hangs on me, so I already know you have no idea what you are talking about. I offered you an opportunity to do some basic reading, learn how to properly ask a question, and then ask that question. You refused to do even that basic legwork. That is why you are ignored. You have no idea what you are talking about, are unwilling to learn, insist that you are right, and refuse to follow even basic direction. If you want to prove me wrong, read the fscking FAQ, learn how to ask a question, provide the actual post content, and I won't even have to reply. 20 other people here will explain to you why you are wrong. Have a nice day!

You see. That is why being nice to people in these situations doesn't work. You mistook my "have a nice day", for "Hey I'm a friendly guy! Feel free to ask me to explain things to you!. While asking for the explanation, you didn't follow basic question asking etiquette. Why don't you actually do the work, post your question after reading esr's FAQ uncluding the actual context necessary to answer the question, and see how that works for you?

What good is a ticket to the good life, if you can't find the entrance?
