"This is a bad idea because of ..., I will not be accepting this into the kernel".

What makes you think he didn't in the first place...?

I've said it before, but these 'Linus goes nuclear' 'news' (entertaining though they are) posts never cover the background of the incident. Usually when you look into the event, the usual polite diplomacy precedes them and the recipient has decided upon some form of brinksmanship and push the issue beyond the limits of the Linus patience threshold.

'Linus posts a reasoned and thoughtful argument against a proposed kernel submission' just wouldn't be clickbaitnews - although we might all learn something educational on a well written article on it.
