Please stop making empty claims such as this without substantiating
it. You failed to explain what was wrong with my statements even though
I asked you to, which shows that you have nothing to substantiate your

I _do_ think very lowly of people who make unfounded claims, and then
don't even try to substantiate them.

Cognitive dissonance at work? Next time, try not to make a jerk of
yourself if you feel the need to "call something out".

Threads are a very difficult tool, if you are "unwitting" then you should
avoid them, or sit down and learn (or ask...). In fact, if you are
"unwitting" you will get wrong ideas no matter what other people say.

You didn't demonstrate this well, though, rather the opposite.

Can't remember, that was probably around 1996, when I found a few bugs in
the softfpu code for x86.

Now that we established that mine is longer, can we stop with these
ridiculuous games? This list is not the right place for your kind of
mails, and the topic of contributions to the linux kernel is off-topic and
rather uninteresting to others, and irrelevant to the issue.

Even if I wrote linux and you never contributed anything, this would
not make me right. What makes me right is whether what I say is right
or not. Likewise, I don't give a shit what you contributed to the linux
kernel, if you demonstrate total lack of knowledge, as you did, then
you just make an idiot out of yourself publicly, regardless of your

I also think _very_ lowly of people who try to win arguments by penis
length comparisons and nothing else. Go to your local kindergarden and do
it there please.
