    Phoronix: The Wayland/Weston Fork Is Now "Banned"

    It's now becoming quite easy to understand why the developer of the Northfield/Norwood fork of Wayland was ejected from the Wayland development community and banned from development communication channels...

    juicy tidbits

    At least now a Google search for "Scott Moreau" will yield some more "juicy tidbits" for potential employers. The internet is forever.

        Last time I checked you were called Michael, not Mike.

        Forget him.

          Good choice. Don't forget to update your spam filter if you didn't do so already
          Edit: @qlum: one troll can do a shitload of damage. I think that's essentially whats going on here. Apart from this little twerp I didn't really hear anything bad from the Wayland mailing list yet in the news at least.

            Michael, you didn't need to publish this and the previous articles. That just made everyone pissed off. I would leave it alone without any coverage of the private side on the Phoronix, I would just ignore kickback offers and other messages. Scott just got crazy after being kicked off from the Wayland project and I bet your publication of his emails made him go even crazier...

              Yeah. Scott does seem to have gone off the deep end...

              ...if Scott is going to compare himself with people who live in Colorado Springs, i would suggest that maybe instead of comparing himself to the likes of Tesla, that he instead use Ted Haggart (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Haggard)...lol

              it would seem with all this drama, that Scott would lean more towards the Ted Haggart end of the spectrum, than Tesla..lol

              (and not in terms of sexual preference, just in terms of drama happening behind 'closed doors').

                depression

                Maybe we should cut Scott some slack.... he might be clinically depressed. Last thing we want is something bad to happen as a result of these back and forths. Reacting only fuels the fire - so it'd be best if you didn't cover it nor respond to anyone, Scott or not, on the subject of this fork.

                  Phoronix seems to attract nutjobs. I recall the "Gnome Survey" guy, who got banned from the mailing lists of various open source projects for trolling and nagging.

                    I couldn't agree more.

                      on the other hand, Tesla might be strangely fitting ... didn't he go kinda megalomaniac/crazy in his later years ?

                        I also think all this has had much more coverage than it ever deserved, and this is kind of a lose-lose situation for everyone.

                            Yes, Phoronix should cover forks of projects only when they have achieved something, not in advance and not drama or hate forks.

                              No need to jump to conclusions.

                              There's no need to jump to conclusions. It's quite possible his email got hacked or something. Could also be that he's used to smsing so much with so many people he doesn't even realize he's doing it:
                              e.g. I knew a girl who had her email, sms, twitter, facebook and so on all under the same smart phone ui... She'd sms\email me half a dozen times a day for a week about the most trivial things without even me answering back. Thing is, when I asked a friend of hers from work if she's alright in the head, she said it's considered pretty normal and that I'm just "totally out of it". She even showed me her 900+ friends facebook account.

                              Kids this days... I do wonder how they get any work done with all that chatting...

                              Now, back to work.
