I was reading today What is hacker culture?[1]. I've been reading about this for so long online. There's people from minorities that feel threatened/abused [2] because Linus or somebody else dismisses their point because of their membership to the said minority.

The first thing first, I'm siding with the ones defending software quality, and not diversity over software.

Let me start by saying that I live in United States now, I lived before in Cuba, I'm white, black hair, Hispanic, and I was poor by the first world standards when I lived in Cuba. I've been contributing to GNOME for the last 3 years, and I never felt like attacked on that regard. I had my patches and contributions criticized, certainly not as harshly as Linus does [3], but I have never thought, for a second, that had anything to do with anything other than my code, and the quality of my contribution.

I believe we should dedicate to write better open source software and that's it.

To the aggravated ones I say: "Assume people mean well" If that's your first thought you'll be more ready to look at the criticism from a constructive point of view.

[2]: Just to make everybody happy, I'm not listing the feelings here, because that will turn the discussion somewhere else.
[3]: Again, please stay on topic. I'm certain he [Linus] doesn't do that all the time.

One last thing before I close: If someone try to hurt you because of your minority membership explicitly: Respond, defend your stand, remember the other party that's not important. And always try to be the better person.
