Gnome Over the weekend, there has been a bit of a ruffling of the feathers over in the GNOME camp. It started with complaints received about the content on Planet GNOME, and ended with people proposing and organising a vote to split GNOME from the GNU Project.

80% of the time he's in the news, it's because of some offensive remark he made.

Thats because he has his distractors who follow him around waiting for him to say something controversial and then amplify it to present him in a negative way to undermine his effort at spreading what he believes in

most of his distractors at the moment are on the "open source" camp who are lusting to incorporate proprietary techonogies in free code and see his opposition to this as an annoyance and wish him to just shut up or die somewhere ..

And most of the time the offensive remark turns out to be some candid remark taken out of context by people with way too thin of a skin and too much time on their hands.

He does have certain personality issues, but honestly so do 90% of people involved in this field.

That's because the news is only picking those up. The discussion wasn't even started by him, nor is he a major part of the actual discussion.

If that were true he would have had to have made an offensive remark to be in the news this time, right? What part did you find offensive? Please quote and link so that I can rip apart your argument precisely and conveniently.
