Well no it isn't. How many times has he been very polite (which obviously El Reg won't publish), or simply accepted patches, or taken patches and fixed them himself in his time ? There are many questions

Re: PostgreSQL

France demands Skype register as telco

persistability

You were asked for alternatives and gave none. Maybe you know of some that others don't ? If you put some down here then, if they really are better, then that would lead to some people on here leaving Skype ... which is what you apparently want. I, for one, would be interested in alternatives, on Linux, and on hearing of others experiences with them. Tried Ekigaphone ages ago and wasn't impressed at all.

Of course if you just don't give any, then you're a troll.

Linus Torvalds in NSFW Red Hat rant

persistability
WTF?

Re: Forcing people to suffer

If someone comes out with something lacking any merit at all on a public forum/mailingList then they are accepting that their ideas may be assessed and possibly ridiculed if meriting it. In the same way someone comes on some forum and doesn't leave their real name just hiding behind the AC nonsense. The ideas proposed by the RedHat employee lacked any merit at all (IMHO), and needed to be categorised as such. Linus did that, whilst suggesting that they could be kept in user space. Suggest you look up bullying in the dictionary before making such utterings

Oracle won't pull plug on Java SE 6 until 2013

persistability
Alert

Re: Switching to Java 6 to Java 7 has nothing to do with language

Java7 introduces some changes in bytecode, and this can mean that things that functioned with JRE1.6 don't with 1.7. Obviously there is some argument you can pass to the JVM that means it treats the bytecode like in 1.6. But third party bytecode tools are still being updated to use this 1.7 bytecode, and it will take some time before all are upgraded.

Facebook: Our phone app DID seize your email

persistability
FAIL

Re: "Its a bug"

Errm, nobody "gave" permission to have their email addresses changed in the first place (on FaceFsck) and so by conclusion they didn't give permission to have those email addresses of contacts changed on some sync. But then you're obviously so embarrassed by your statement that you had to make it anonymous. Says it all.

BT fibre-to-the-cabinet rollout penetrates 73 more exchanges

persistability

What about the previous list(s)

... that have been slipping and slipping ? Willowcroft for example, originally planned for end Dec 2011, then slipped to start March 2012, then slipped to end March 2012, and today has slipped further to end June 2012. BT's "exchanges ready for 'infinity'" has had the exchange as "ready" since end of 2011, just that nobody can have it.
