    SubjectRe: the ' 'official' point of view' expressed by
    Please, I'm starting to me quite upset of all those references to impoliteness.

    Every time on lkml someone talks about reiserFS/reiser4, immediatelly after
    espressing his technical point (if he has something to say, of course), then
    he feels he needs to add that developers should be polite. i.e he feels he
    needs to take the distance from reiserFs developers attitude towards other
    kernel maintainers.

    I am replying to this mail because it is the last one I am reading, but the
    previos mails from all the other who discussed this topic are really tipical
    about this attitude.

    I follow lkml since years, I know very well what happened, but do you think
    that people are going to change, and their attitude is going to improve, if
    in every post they read, they fell to be marked as "the bad guy ready to
    flame everyone who disagrees with him in the worst impolite way"? If you
    want thing to go better, please avoid those considerations and be happy just
    focusing on the technical arguments.
