    So It's not he who "responded in kind" to me, it's the other way around - I responded to him the way he's been responding to others plenty of times before.
    Actually, I didn't make that mistake,I just don't care. This topic is the one I was refering to, and thus what I said stands perfectly well based on the content of this discussion.

    "don't respond to him" is not the solution. Even if I don't respond, I still have to put up with the annoying "f you nvidia" posts all the time. Why should I have to? Why are you the second person here giving people the go-ahead to be obnoxious, while denying me the request that something is done about it?
    Is there some reason you cannot counter your personal disapproval with personally adding him to your ignore list, instead of asking him to be banned?

      Is there some reason you're objecting the request to ban an obnoxious person not capable of proper conversation? This should be a no-brainer: In a community, you don't ask everyone to adapt to the one obnoxious person. It's the one person who should adapt, or he is to be removed (first temporarily, then permanently if the temporary timeout didn't suffice).

        I don't object if we draw a line in the sand. Since you've lowered yourself to his level, you wouldn't mind requesting one for yourself now too, would you?

        Its not really the same though, is it? The difference is Linus had genuine complaint, or at least in a position to have one. From my perspective, he generally skirts backing his opinions with sensible arguments, but thats by the by.

          Ah the hypocrisy...
          When Torvald's says "Fuck you nVidia" he's being a spoiled man child bashing the only company that makes his kernel worth using on workstations. When you do it, you are showing the world that you are a violent psychopath.

          Take your meds, call your sponsor, get help.

            My workstation runs fine with both my integrated Intel, and discrete AMD GPU. What problems do you experience?

              You are the violent psychopath here. Go fuck yourself. Asshole.
              Seriously guys, you want to banter, rant and swear go PM each other in IRC and let's try to keep the forums clean and respectable. If you don't I'll just start deleting posts with profanity.

                That's pretty much the definition of maturity. Not necessarily treating them with respect, but not flying off the handle every time you're insulted, and reducing your posts to nothing more than cluster f-bombs.

                  And on that note, I'm locking the thread as it is so far gone that there is little hope of getting back on track.
