Whether Linux would be better or worse if its mailing list had a different hue is hard to say.

Getting humiliated is a reasonable cure for "being a dick", and to get personal attention from Linus in this way means you've really been a dick.

It is probably ultimately good that Linus is passionate about what does and does not go in the kernel. Imagine what Linux would be like if he let any half assed idea become part of the code?
