ESR Thinks SJWs are Targeting Prominent Open Source Developers

Are SJWs (Social Justice Warriors) targeting prominent open source figures in an attempt to destroy their lives?

This blog post comes from Eric S. Raymond (ESR), a very prominent open source software developer. If you have a device capable of gps, then you might be using software written by him (gpsd).

Excerpts from the post:

The short version is: if you are any kind of open-source leader or senior figure who is male, do not be alone with any female, ever, at a technical conference. Try to avoid even being alone, ever, because there is a chance that a “women in tech” advocacy group is going to try to collect your scalp.

The MO was to get alone with the target, and then immediately after cry "attempted sexual assault".

Linus is never alone at any conference. This is not because he lets fame go to his head and likes having a posse around. They have made multiple runs at him.
