Open Source, Hostile Environment?

Some people have been talking recently about hostile environments in open source software projects. I came across this comment in code (while searching for "f**k microsoft", try it!:-D)
IMHO this truly is hostile and intimidating...

"Every time you put it back, I will come in and take it out again. I'm sorry. This field does not belong here."

... but on the other hand it can be hard to micro manage code in an open project if you aren't able to devote 100% attention to what's going on the whole time.
