huh? i don't follow this at all, sorry ... quoting people from their posts to linux-kernel is what we do around here ...
if you think that only technical considerations are part of the kernel development process, you are fooling yourself ... perhaps i concentrated too much on the 'social/political' part of things, for me, it was a difficult balance to strike.
i sense that you are one of the participants and feel i somehow misrepresented you? if so, apologies for that as well ... but I don't see any 'ethical' (or 'maturity' for that matter) breach.
