Is It Time to Restore Civility to Linux Development?

http://j.mp/12sV9GI  (InternetNews)

   "Linus Torvalds is well known for his use of colorful language on the
    Linux Kernel Mailing List (LKML) and he's not the only one that uses
    questionable language that some might considering threatening.  For
    the last 20 years, I can't remember anyone actually standing up to
    Linus (or the other colorful devs) saying that's just not right --
    until today.  Sarah Sharp, Linux kernel developer at Intel is making a
    stand against the verbal abuse."

Three cheers for Sarah. She's finally saying it out loud. There's no
valid excuse -- even for a brilliant guy who has done a world of 
good -- to behave like a jerk.
