But with BSD zealots promoting this level of hatred against the Linux developers, and even those pointing out their behavior is counter productive, I don't see anything changing soon.

> Level of hatred because they stole the code? Only thing Theo is asking for is that you respect the licence and he PROMOTE that Linux use the code with correct licence. How hard is that to understand? Geez. I wonder who is pushing the hatred.

1. No code has been stolen.

2. Theo is calling Linux developers names, making outrageous and unsustainable claims of real copyright violations (that he admits are not backed by any real lawyers who have examined the case)

Who is pushing the hatred? The BSD zealots. Quit your zealous apologia for the hotheads in the BSD community, and look at the real world for a moment. Now consider HOW MUCH DAMAGE YOUR INSULTS AND FALSE ALLEGATIONS ARE DOING TO COOPERATION BETWEEN THE OPENBSD COMMUNITY AND EVERYONE ELSE.

Last time the BSD teams violated copyrights, the Linux community bent over backwards to help and get the issue resolved amicably. The OpenBSD community acted with malice and insults then, and they're doing it now. Next time OpenBSD screws up, it's doubtful they'll have a friend to defend them.
