linux.org domain taken over, doxxed person who created CoC (but wait!)

devNews - Dec. 6, 2018 at 11:03 pm - dox coc code of conduct dns takeover linux dns

At the time of writing, linux.org does not support HTTPS and has an empty page. Previously, that page showed quite a lot of information about the doxxed person
www.linux.org redirects to the previously doxxed person's Twitter account.
Currently, this seems like a DNS takeover.

We ask you not to spam them. Yes, they created the CoC, something lots of you hate. However, they only created it. They weren't responsible for quite a few open-source projects adopting it. Thus, doxxing then like this was an (objectively) terrible idea, as they aren't responsible for those that made Linux use the widely-hated CoC.

Thanks for reading this brief article, take care.
