people browbeating you for criticizing linus torvalds has nothing to do with meritocracy. it has to do with placing reverence in something or someone that doesn't deserve it. if they recognized that he didn't deserve that reverence then it would be more like a meritocracy.

as for sugarcoating or ground-glass-coating the truth, calling someone a moron as he did is not "truth", it's opinion.
