I guess you never heard of Fake News.
Can you prove it is fake?

Okay, now it's getting political.

I'd be more concerned that the SJW's will push older experienced coders out from working on the kernel in the future. From an outsider looking in that appears exactly what they are doing to Linus. He isn't 'politically correct' when he melts a few snowflakes with his harsh talk. I fear for the future when I think how weak and maudlin these babies are. They better stay away from the military and any job where someone is going to tell them to get their ____ together. Even in high school I had teachers who told me as much and I respected them for it. Linus' only concern was the kernel being correct. We don't need a conduct code, we need people to toughen up or life will eat them alive. My two cents for what it's worth.

Isn't the problem that politics IS being forced into the Linux kernel? Aren't people trying to control the behavior and beliefs of others instead of just keeping politics out of kernel development? Politics should be left out of it and it isn't :(

It seems very subjective in fact, and also depends of the conjoncture, SJW is only part of JW and both are politicals in that case.

And politics should be kept out of this Forum in any form.
