Getting hosed by the open source community, a link from Reddit. I completely feel for this guy. Most techies that I know are decent people who are quite helpful and friendly. Unfortunately, their numbers are dwindling. Basic civility seems to be lost and I don't think we're getting it back. The impersonal 'net teaches people that it's safe to be an asshole. Even I do it sometimes, but I apologize when I've realized it. This, I think, is the worst thing the 'net has given us.
