First, only an idiot would want a monoculture, particularly in the Linux world, so to those saying "just to systemd full bore or go to (someplace else)" the rest of us need to respond with a very loud and resounding: Fuck You.
That said, things aren't nearly as dire as this post implies. Reading from the responses to the bug he himself linked to, I find the following:
> Unless KDE is prepared to make a statement that it depends on systemd
of course not. Powerdevil recently also gained support for ConsoleKit2, see: http://commits.kde.org/powerde...
Which turns it into a distro problem. Your distribution configured the system in a way that suspend/hibernate is broken. It doesn't come with any of the supported solutions Plasma provides. Which makes it a distro problem. The distro integrates various parts of the software stack. This includes it's the distro's task to ensure that components work together. It failed here by ripping out systemd and replace it with well nothing.
So while I'm sure the systemd zealots would love to see KDE, Gnome3, etc. only work with systemd and drop support for all other distros, this doesn't appear to be happening. In the case of KDE, ConsoleKit2 is supported (and therefor Funtoo, Gentoo, Arch with OpenRC, etc. will continue to work just fine).
... and lost her mind.
Which is a very typical path for religious converts (they tend to start out a bit unbalanced and vulnerable to begin with, get sucked into one religion or another, convert and become the worst, most zealous Godbotherers around)

You overstate the capabilities of stackoverflow. I have 30K+ karma there. Right now the most upvoted answer to "How do I track location with GPS on Android" is badly broken. It has been for 5 years. I've wrote my own answer to combat it, but as the original answer is 5 years old it doesn't get the upvotes it needs to drown it out. I see questions on how to work around the bugs in the original answer on a weekly basis, still can't kill it.
Just because an answer is highly upvoted, used, or commented on SO doesn't mean its right. It means its worth looking into. But using it without testing and understanding is unprofessional and will cost you more time than you'd save by using SO.
Also- I almost never see comments about why code works, limitations, etc. Sometimes it happens, but not all that frequently.
"Trivially easy" for IT, security or developers isn't likely the same as trivially easy for casual users of phone apps who aren't computer-related professionals
I keep hoping he'll interrupt a debate by throwing his toupee into the air and crying "Culture Jam!!!", but I don't give him that much credit.
I wonder if all those people in pursuit of 72 virgins realize that souls don't have dicks?
So will the CEO do hard time if there is a felony car accident? Due to a software fault / sensor error?
Yeah, because that will so encourage corporations to accept liability and responsibility for their products, and not use a boilerplate "get out of jail free" card by putting all risk on the passengers (e.g. GPL section 15):

EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM âoeAS ISâ WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

That is exactly what we don't want from autonomous car manufacturers, so threatening to lock their CEOs up for trying to do the right thing isn't just counter-productive, it is beyond stupid.
Find a book called "Big Secrets". It's got recipes for coke, kfc, etc.and a whole chapter on polygraphy: the whole sordid story. I loaned it to a friend that was really worried about a mandatory polygraph for job. When the interview started _exactly_ as described in the book she almost broke out laughing. Aced the test, took the job.
Did she lie?
Though history shows that you can stretch either just about as far as you want.
Consider how Christianity went from The Sermon on the Mount to burning people alive for non-conformity.
It's the American Dream to accidentally create one of the world's most enduring conspiracy theories.
Glad to know that the EU is run by lobbyists too.
Interestingly, lots of games and movies seem to assume that there are certain classes of "people" that it's just OK to kill. Orks, zombies, nazis, terrorists, aliens: be sure to shoot first!
Commentary on D&D by a Dr. Spear? That's a pretty suspicious last name, if you ask me.
Is his first name Shake?
