How does anyone take #OpenBSD seriously? I honestly don't understand. It has no usability.
@taoeffect Usability can be very subjective. I honestly don't find most Linux distributions, Windows, Mac or whatnot very usable. But that's highly subjective. Use what feels right to you, it's a tool, no more no less.
@taoeffect Apparently it's not unusable since people use it all the time and are very happy with it. I don't see your point? Why label something with such strong terms? I don't get what this kind of rhetoric is trying to achieve.
@raichoo Shaming people into not building shit.
@raichoo OpenBSD has a lot going for it. We need a secure OS. But it’s doing nobody any favors by being unusable.

Right, so you never use OpenSSH, don't own an iPhone or an Android device, never manage servers with sudo and find no benefit in any https://www.openbsd.org/innovations.html from the project - good for you.
No one is preventing you from sending patches If you find it unusable, talk is cheap.
> No one is preventing you from sending patches
If I were to find the time to send patches in to an operating system, it wouldn't be to #OpenBSD.

Ignoring a problem will magically make it better.

diffs make things better, complaining about a system you never plan to contribute to achieves nothing.
Are you expecting someone else to do work that you yourself don't find important enough to get personally involved?
Any work done is performed by volunteers in areas of their own interest. You're running around claiming the system is useless while myself and plenty others use it as our daily drivers & fixing our own pet peeves.
As for the sshoted reply about the mailing list - that is our regular workflow, we go through the same process ourselves.
