The reaction is not appropriate.
The behaviour could be due to simple ignorance, instead of idiocy.
If he *knew* it was idiotic, he *would not* have done it, isn't it?
Or didn't you think about that?
Are maybe you -God forbid!- an idiot too?
In any case, even if r0bertz is a clueless idiot, the only sane approach
is even in this case to calmly and rationally explain (or providing
links to information) why what he was doing was, in your opinion, wrong.
That's for example what I am doing with you, even if you are quite
jaw-droppingly too, outside a system administration context.
You see: it's called "Dealing With People". It's a different software
from Portage or Paludis, but you should try it nonetheless.
This is paranoid behaviour.
To think that there is a "hate campaign" about your little software is
It's not paranoid, it's true. I've seen it.
Pretty unfortunately, that's what every paranoid would say.
Until I will see anti-paludis campaigns in the streets, sorry, it's just
paranoia. You see people disagreeing (very wholeheartedly) with you, and
instead of accepting that, you build the delusion of a conspiracy.
It's a well known, quite common psychological mechanism.
Of course you are free to give me the URLs of angry anti-paludis
websites, the menacing private mails you received, etc. and convince me
I am wrong.
Actually, I'm pretty sure >99.999% of world population just doesn't care
about your software.
Perhaps, but some of the people who do care care in a rather malicious way.
And, sir, what would the aim of those people be? What advantage they
have from maliciously and viciously crushing Paludis? Will they become
richer? More powerful? Or it's for the women?
You see, you happily give "idiocy" tags to people, yet you seem to
believe things that have no rational justification at all. Maybe you
should think twice.
Moreover, as I told you some time ago, the only way to shut up lies is
*facts*. In software, facts means code.
As I told you some time ago, these people don't care about code.
They care about code, and they care about your public behaviour. Even if
they spread lies about your code because they want the Crystal Skull
from the Paludis Shrine, well, you do not have to convince them.
You have to convince everyone else.
And you are not doing that. Trying to win on Volker, you are losing with
But at this point I don't think you will understand that -you're too
busy not being an "idiot" when talking about package management, yet
being somehow not as clever when dealing with human beings.
