The Subversion development community has been subject to Eric's drive-by flames, too. On several occasions. At least one of those times, we had to send Eric email off-list to ask him to stop posting and leave. By that point, everybody had flipped the bozo bit and begun ignoring him entirely. Thus, his continued rants were merely sucking energy from the community with zero potential for any positive outcome.
Since this has happened several times at Subversion, and now I learn with Fedora, too, I can only conclude this is Eric's "typical" pattern of interaction with communities nowadays. Unfortunately, it is rather uncool, disrespectful, and unbecoming of him.
