I prefer the suitably gracious point of view that the people in question are well-meaning
hackers who hope to improve the world by contribution of their skills to open source projects.

Unfortunately, being a well-meaning person who hopes to improve the world doesn't seem to
automatically give you the skills to communicate and negotiate effectively.  The same could be
said of a great many well-meaning people whose names are familiar to us all because of their
great contributions.
