Some bugs are so deep the open source process can't fix them.

Some bugs are so deep that they are very difficult to fix. FTFY

Search Google for "prune_one_dentry oops". [...] nobody wants to take that on.

FUD. The fix is in the work for a long time. Christoph Lameter recently (01/29/2010) submitted the 15th iteration of the patch set. Hopefuly this time no unforeseen consequences will prevent it to be merged into the official kernel. You can read about it here:

Submission + - New eBay scam, without violating ebay policy

Bert64 writes: "It seems that eBay allows you to say one thing about the location of an item in the auction description, but then if the item turns out to be defective to supply a completely different address, in another country, where the item can be returned at buyer's expense. No mention of this was in the original auction listing, in the hope of fooling those who would normally not buy from a foreign seller. Details on of how i was stung by this, and how it can so easily be abused by anyone to profit by ripping off unsuspecting buyers while ebay sits back and does nothing about it. So anyone can ship defective items, and then make the returns process expensive enough that people won't bother."
