I have been watching this debacle since I first heard about it, and I am quite concerned about this ...
As soon as I saw the phrase "political correctness" you lost me. And "cry-bullies?" Really?

They're just trying to get get people to act like grown-ups, which is apparently harder than it should be.

Some people are more sensitive than others. That's life. No matter what you do or say, someone will disagree with it/you.

There are extremists nomatter where or what, they so often make their point of view the prevailing view.

Sociopaths/psychopaths generally have what it takes to out compete their oposition. So many leaders in the world fit this bill. Though being a sociopath/psychopath isn't normal.

I don't think that the world has got better. It has & is deteriorating at a rapid rate. The brevity of our lives makes it seem (if you are looking) that it is happening in slow motion. /rant

I also agree with stevo, the Linus thing is pretty old news now.

Care to explain what is wrong with what I said? I don't think it is unreasonable, false or misleading to call a spade a spade.

If that was the case, all they had to do was enforce the pre-existing rules and lead by example. The original rules were simpler, didn't need a "how to interpret the rules" document, and could have achieved the same purpose without delving into identity politics.
