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

I think he does this because he gets fed up of receiving a bad piece of code and occasionally escalates into a profanity laced but reasoned and critical post to explain why its bad and why it won't be accepted. Presumably these posts do attract attention (clearly The Register is a subscriber if it can generate a cheap story for them) and perhaps that's the point. People read the post, get the message and stop submitting stuff that way.
