Submission + - Female Kernel Dev Tells Linus Torvalds to Stop Using Threatening Language (internetnews.com) 1

darthcamaro writes: The Linux Kernel Development Mailing List can be a hostile place for anyone. It's an environment where foul language from Linus Torvalds is the norm and the tone of some conversations can be threatening. Now Intel developer Sarah Sharp is taking a stand and she wants the LKML to become a more civil place.

Seriously, guys? Is this what we need in order to get improve -stable? Linus Torvalds is advocating for physical intimidation and violence. Ingo Molnar and Linus are advocating for verbal abuse. Not *fucking* cool. Violence, whether it be physical intimidation, verbal threats or verbal abuse is not acceptable. Keep it professional on the mailing lists.
