Linus Torvalds in sweary rant about punctuation in kernel comments

I really don't understand why the networking people think that their particularly ugly styles are fine.

Um....Perhaps because they ARE fine.

Seriously, Linus has lost his mind with this one. Who cares what commenting style they use? As long as you can tell a comment from a code (and if you can't then you really shouldn't be working on the kernel) it makes no difference.
