So? An opinion shared by a billion people is still an opinion, not a
fact. To think otherwise is to fall in the argumentum ad populum

Now you are committing two fallacies at the same time; argument from
authority and hasty generalization.

Yes, Linus Torvalds lost his temper with me, he has done so with so
many people that's hardly surprising. I still think he is wrong, but
to prove it I need information that is not readily available, and it's
not that important anyway.

That doesn't mean that Linus' opinion is shared by the list (or any
other Linux mailing list); if you think so you are committing the
hasty generalization fallacy.

And if you think Linus' opinion means something is a fact you commit
the argument from authority fallacy.

None of this mean that my patches are not welcome in LKML, or any
other Linux mailing list.

I repeat what Linus said:

Talk is cheap, show me the code.
