Perhaps I'm more thick-skinned than most (or more dense) but I've never interpreted Theo's comments as personal insults. I don't think he's ever written anything like "Linus Torvalds is an idiot and all Linux users are giant poopyheads", he states what are basically technical opinions in admittedly blunt (sometimes coarse) language.
I consider that to be honesty. Obviously he's no diplomat, but calling him an "ass" might be an overstatement. Of course I've never met him in person; perhaps he does come off that way face to face.
