I don't take that comment as being made out of anger, or as an attempt to be judgmental, or anything of that sort.

Whether it's deserved or not, the drama and idolization the Ruby community tends to exhibit can get kind of annoying to others.

I don't think that anyone would really object to discussion of _who, or Zed, or DHH, or whatever the current drama-of-the-day is, as long as it's done within a Ruby-specific mailing list, IRC channel, conference or other locale.

However, once this starts spilling over into more general discussion forums, it can be seen as disruptive and out-of-place by some.
