"GNU + Linux = broken development model". It should be no surprise that LWN readers (including many Linux developers) won't take kindly to their style of development being called "broken". That's a statement that requires some compelling evidence to back up; one is essentially saying Linux has progressed so far *in spite of* such a broken model.

The wrongness of one doesn't increase the rightness of another, and the politeness of another isn't a prerequisite for the politeness of oneself. I must say I rather see a single inpolite message in a thread than many, and many others here agree, which is why we prefer for people not to sink to squabble. I think it's fair enough to point that out. There's always LKML and slashdot for flamefests :-)

I wish I could highlight your post; it cheers me up knowing at least some people understand this point. ;-)
