Now with Linus putting in the persecuting Code Of Conduct and apologizing (around 2018-09-25), something's wrong. I doubt he suddenly changed and saw the light, for person of his age and severity at extreme swearing. (note, there's big diff, from swearing and actual cruelty. Linus is 0 of the latter.) He is prob under overt or covert pressure.
