> Abuse is perfectly fine when you need to get the persons attention.

I dare to disagree. If somebody consistently causes problems AND is resistant to all other approaches, then I can understand abuse. Still, keeping calm does not hurt.

That said, I am largely on Linus' side with all incidents reported on the Reg. Also I have treated people in a way that is called 'abuse' by now (each time after they have been useless dick-heads of the first order for months or even years). I have to admit that I never regretted any of that.

So, icon is not me.
