standing up against verbal abuse

Filed under
Linux

Kernel hacker Sarah Sharp has stood up against the way of communication common on the Linux Kernel Mailing List. I have quite a few thoughts about this, and I thought I’d share them here. Quoting Sarah:

I’m standing up against verbal abuse on LKML. I will happily stand alone, however you can also support this cause. Please speak up, either here on Google+ by resharing this post, or commenting on this post with words of support. If you dare, you can also reply to my lkml email.

Thanks for posting this, Sarah. You’re bringing up an important topic here, which is avoided all too often. Sarah is completely right, and entitled to demand an abuse-free working environment.
