@Posty I mean, yes, it is… it's just that the news dredged up the extensive history of people's defence or admiration of his past behaviour, which some are still surprised by.
@Posty so I'm not really dragging Linus here, but rather people ignoring/defending bad behaviour. See also: Elon Musk fan club.
@sigkill the more i grow older the more i learn that someone who has done or accomplished something in some way respectable has been a dick in their past. It's nice when they're not. Neil Cicerega is my current holdout champion in the "kill your heroes/buddha" contest.
I hate the musk fandom and some of my best friends I know are among them (not twitter reply guys thankfully).
