I'll agree, especially so for those that argue against the
person/messenger rather than focusing on the /ideas/ being argued.

Add also a huge irritation for those that wander about the bush or those
that still argue even when they don't even know what bush is their bush!...

Lead as in direction, or lead as in dense metal?... ;-)

Regardless, we do have a very good practical (Linus) and political (rms)
"good cop - bad cop" old "one - two" act who have contrived to be the
catalyst of a lot of IT freedom...
