Linus is only a douche where someone should know better or someone ignores what he's said multiple times. He is always gentle to the children of the flock (until they try to post the same busted patch eight times and he's told them why it can't be accepted seven times.) When he's mad, he's mad because someone is doing something that will damage Linux. Hell, if Linus was actually a douche, the whole "Sarah Sharp beating him with a feminism wiffle ball bat" incident wouldn't have gone well at all. Sarah Sharp is still pounding away at the USB code in the kernel and Linus is still just fine working with her. The press sensationalized a couple of posts in the thread but chose to ignore all of the respectful discussion thereafter; this is the only reason a lot of people think Linus is a real douchenozzle that needs to "be fired" or "quit."
Honestly, he's probably the best "boss" in a technical field that any of us have had the pleasure of observing. I have no doubt that 99.999% of Slashdot readers would have done a worse job than him. Not because they're incompetent or incapable of managing a project, but because it'd be very hard to do what he's done managerially any better than he has done it.
Or your 30 passwords can look like "Mfdajsio[$#@5625429i04356kio:FSD===-F" and you can trust all of them to a password manager and pray that the one magical master password for that manager doesn't fall into the wrong hands, lest your single point of failure give up a list of all your accounts along with their corresponding passwords.
There was also no dishonesty in my statements--I stated that I did not know if the option existed which is not the same as "other browsers don't have that." I do not use non-Firefox browsers on a regular basis.
If you were considering the "published" part, "published" also doesn't necessarily mean that the services are in a nice easy list on some server somewhere for the FBI to download. Of course, the Tor directory servers obviously handle
tl;dr: "Public key" doesn't mean "published key" and "published" doesn't necessarily mean "in an easy-to-read directory somewhere."
The real problem is that lots of people buy cheap shit computer hardware and they get exactly what they pay for when they do. All manufacturers come out with duds too (that's just how it goes in the manufacturing game) so reading reviews before purchasing is far more important than the name stamped or painted on the item's casing. Branding isn't as important today as it used to be. In the end Foxconn, Quanta, and Compal actually manufacture almost all of this stuff, so the quality often comes down to the engineering of the specific model of board or laptop and who it was made for.
