I sometimes have the feeling that there is certain kinds of essential that either requires developers to already be assholes to be able to build it effectively, or working on it turns the developers into assholes. This is stuff that we all need, that society is built upon. I appreciate the work, but personally want nothing to do with those communities. Yet it is also important that essential software is free software and open to contributions. It is a paradox I often think about.

@eighthave Funny the idea that working on certain kind of difficult, essential software can turn you into a less kind human, but totally believable as well
