Linus Torvalds won't apply 'sh*t-for-brains stupid patch'


I think Linus is playing to the peanut gallery when he behaves like this.

It's fun, it's entertaining (if you're not on the receiving end, I suppose) and it adds a little spice to the otherwise dreary business of maintaining an operating system kernel.

It's true that in a normal business situation, this behaviour would be unacceptable (and f2f, would significantly elevate the risk of receiving a firm biff on the hooter - or at least a strongly-worded email), but kernel development ain't that.
