Not a statement. Maybe just not limited to open source. But as a person who loves to use open source, I have every now and then bumped at very rude guys. They will attack and insult you for no reason. Some of them are not happy about making enough money. I think that is one of the main reason for the rudeness.
They often forget the recognition part. But sometimes, I feel empathy for them. Some people are really rude at them as well. Swearing at them when their work is available for free. Sometimes even that is not without reason. But attacking FOSS volunteers will only worsen the emotional atmosphere around it.
What do you think ?
