And sometime public mocking is counter-productive. Here's an example from yesterday where a developer was mocked for no good purpose (the API documentation was out of date, and they were asking how it now worked). I wonder if the developer feels as motivated about contributing to the kernel as they did before that thread. The level of blame towards the developer rather than towards the patch which didn't update the documentation is interesting.
