Linus Torvalds On Linux's Code of Conduct

I find this article interesting in that people are trying to shove 'political correctness' and SJW shit into something that really has nothing to do with it, imo.

what do you think?

I thought this message to the LKML was worth reading:

IMO its just a game whose end goal is trying to rip the Kernel and kernel development apart.



As Linus said, if certain people got control of the kernel with all their little demands to make it more X Y or Z, they'd run it into the ground in a month. Breaking userspace, breaking compatibility and causing nothing but trouble.
