    This is not a satire and I find your interpretation of my post very oppressive and misogynistic. For one, I am for Sarah Sharp, she has been bullied by the extreme patriarchal system that has infected computer science and software development. My introduction of the hashtag #KillAllMen is not a joke. It is a powerful statement mean to hi light to fear and threat that woman face from men.

    The fact that there is lots of people disfavoring Sarah Sharp's decisions and options prove that feminism is correct and that misogyny has infected the software community. To be fair, I don't blame this on the Linux and GPL community and they started off very fair rather, the problem most likely came from M$, Apple and BSD infiltration into what would otherwise been a very friendly community.

    If you feel threatened by #KillAllMen, then I think you understand how Sarah Sharp feels everyday at home and at work and you should re-post this hashtag.

    #KillAllMen #DieCisScum
    You are making my day by giving me great laughs. This post perfectly highlights the "somebody said mean things on the internets" problem that isn't really much of a problem anymore in the FOSS community, yet somehow gets complained about. Even better, its blowing all these social issues way out of proportion! Seriously, continue making my day.

    This post even goes on as a commentary to tumblr like communities and the realization that opinions are not infallible is even better. +1 for even throwing "misogyny" around like it means "i disagree with your opinion". Its even one giant meme, the internet thanks you very much for your contributions from both men and women. Must say though, you did nail the coffin in Microsoft (being spelt as M$ for proper meme usage) being generally crummy.

    Finally, i must commend you on using the most ridiculous of all possible hashtags to try to make me feel as threatened as possible, and making me and the world realize that this is just one giant empty threat. The world thanks you

I think need to tell back the community and make it equal for woman and I think here at phoronix, I borrowed a powerful hash tag to show that misorgy has no place in the FLOSS community: https://twitter.com/hashtag/killallmen

    So I'm introducing this hash tag to this forum: #KillAllMen.

    Please use this hash tag generously to show your support for woman.

    'cept she hasn't even been maintaining USB 3.0 drivers since May 2014.
    Nice try blaming her though.

    Assuming not, since you believe that the linux kernel (the subject at hand) is an OS as quoted above.

    There is an easier way when it comes to professionalism and technical work, for people not to attract aggressive behaviour towards them, Its called "git gud".
    And most of those are rather disgusted by the behaviour of the community, as well.
    It's private individuals like Linus Torvalds who are allowed to talk like manchilds. Not "big shot developers working for a major corporation".

    Hehe is it so hard to admit that this is an actual problem guys? Elitism and bigotry in the linux community, not just among kernel developers/maintainers is old news, it's one of the biggest reasons why many people take a 180 degree turn right back to windowsland after interacting with us. But no troll ever stopped trolling just because they knew they were trolls, did they? I mean I've been in some pretty damn bad communities online (like League of Legends, infamous for it's toxic playerbase and community) but never have I seen it worse than the linux community.

    If Sarah would had succeeded in her coup I would had probably switched to *BSD.
