It is always easier to argue with yourself than with others. Eric was not
saying that acting like Cro-Magnon Man is the best way to respect others
or demonstrate intelligence. He _was_ saying that political correctness
and an honest recognition of reality are often mutually exclusive. I
agree with that. What do you think?

He's gramatically challenged, motherfucker. (joking...)

I took it as a sort of tongue-in-cheek comment... You took it as
something you could try to use to make the author look dumb. You have
unwittingly supported Eric's point of view.

WOW! Could you tell us MORE about the REAL world!?! It sounds neat!

It's the quality of the code that matters... I couldn't care less if they
put ASCII art of human sex organs in the kernel sources. Of course, that
just goes to show you what an uncultured ass I am.

Anyhow, the discussion is moot .. Linus (who has already made his views
clear), and any involved programmers decide what the content of the kernel
sources will be. Evidently, they are quite competent to do this.
