    In many countries this sort of accusation could be considered slander and it could open you up to legal action. Just a heads up before you go about making wild inaccurate claims in the future. Lawyers are damned expensive, you know.

    Secondly, what apology? There was nothing in there that was structured or spelt close to an apology.

    We talk again if you say something similir to the guy who called me a piece of shit and a nazi.

    AND he did mobb some of his coworkers in the irc channel, so he did something that could cause legal action too.

    And this is not facebook its a forum on a site with very very less users. so I doubt that companies scan phoronix onto some people did say stuff.

    And again he is kind of public person now, google public person they have not the same rights than not-public persons.

    And I call politicans also with their full name asholes or psychos. So calling him a man who is in danger to become a psychopath, I can live with that.

    Sorry I answered again, but I cant believe how somebody can make such big deal out of one word, and even not accept a apolodgise.

    I was speaking on the whole dee. Even those working at red hat probably chose red hat because they were passionate about the work and open source.

    I'm a professional programmer; I've never been involved in a FOSS project before, but I always imagined they operated pretty similar to corporate projects - perhaps with more relaxed deadlines.

    For the same reason that I couldn't imagine myself, or any of my work colleagues, getting into a screaming contest in the office - I really didn't think I would see that in a FOSS project either. There are always going to be people you may not like at work, but you still treat them with courtesy and respect because it creates a good working environment despite your differences. Unfortunately it seems that taking away the money and face-to-face contact has destroyed that.

    There seems to be some big egos around here, perhaps shining a light on their interpersonal skills may bring them down a peg or two.
    You don't code for FOSS because you're getting paid to do it, you do it because you're passionate about it. And when you're Pssionate about something, you're gonna get passionately defensive about it.

    Nah, the difference between software companies and FOSS projects is that the latter are completely open for everyone to see, thus are easy news targets when things like that happen. In a company, if something like that happened, the press would not be there to see it happening. Plus, in FOSS you are free to create forks, and you can't fork a company just because you thought your boss was being mean. So conflicts like that do happen in both cases, and in both cases these events are very rare, just that it's much easier to see such events when the whole process is completely transparent to outsiders.

    Yes.

    Agreed. Do you feel anybody who was involved, other than soreau, has not been courteous and respectful? He has admitted being discourteous and disrespectful to everyone in the project for a year, and said he doesn't believe that matters. The only screaming came from soreau. I think everybody else involved has shown incredible restraint.

    12:28 < soreau> I DONT GIVE A SHIT what you ignorant people think about attitude, politics and a bunch of crap that doesn't even matter
    ...
    12:32 < Darxus> soreau: FYI, not giving a shit about people is exactly your problem.
    12:32 < soreau> Darxus: You're a fucking idiot

    So we had one problem person, and took too long to kick him out. When we did, there was some public outcry because it could easily seem from the outside that it was inappropriate to kick him out. We were asked to explain it, so we did. And then soreau has tried to use the situation to gain an audience, and a couple of us have pointed out the problems with his arguments.

    It's possible you're interpreting some unfortunate participation from the peanut gallery as being others actually involved in the project. Both in IRC logs and elsewhere.
