Parent article: Quotes of the week
If we want it to be the case that "the community will continue to become less tolerant of unpleasant behavior" (from the predictions article), can we stop recognizing and glorifying LKML's best insults by putting them on quote-of-the-week lists? At the very least, if those insults are defensible at all (which they're not), can we stop quoting them out of context, as if the entire point -- as it seems sometimes -- is to come up with the best insult for other developers, regardless of the technical issue at hand?
The first three quotes were great. No need to ruin it with the last.
