I had a dream that many prominent members of the Linux community were dressed in Nazi SS uniforms on the Arctic ice, clubbing baby seals to death.
I can’t bear the thought that so many Linux people may secretly be Nazi seal murderers, so I demand that they be excluded from any future Linux-related events or conferences that I might wish to attend. My nightmare and the strength of my personal reaction to it are conclusive proof that they are guilty.
I can’t remember all those who were identified in my dream right now, so I need to be able to point the finger at any time in the future and have any individual shunned – excluded and banned from events, conferences, mailing lists, and open source projects in general…with any who communicate with them (or, worse, support the evil-doers by pretending to a moderate, reasonable, rational, and/or evidence-based stance) being likewise exiled.
After all, remember that even in these enlightened times there is still a seething culture of penguin-supremacism in the Linux community – overtly pushing the agenda of the pure penguin race over the pernicious and corrosive evil of seals….this culture of seal-murder must be stamped out by whatever means necessary. Zero tolerance for seal-murder apologists!
Thank you for understanding and supporting me in my very real fears. You make the world a safer place for everyone.
