I personaly think that the "rude" comments in the code, shoudl be left as
they are.. I dont know about any one else, but wen I write a prog it is
downright amazing if I comment it at all, and if some one is going to
tell me what to and what not to put in my comments, then I may as well
not comment it at all.. and with most a great loss for those of us who
scan through linux source and would be totaly lost were it not for thoes
comments.. I vote they stay.

I disagree. A big advantage of Linux is the source availability, and
as such we operate in a glass house that other OS's don't. As such,
those "impurities" will be very visible with Linux, and will make us
look bad.
