The Second Life Herald is running an article about Plastic Duck's job inquiry at LL and how the CEO responded. Well, beside the obvious commentary from Prokofy Neva (gna... if he's so horrible, just shut up and sue him!) it's a rather heated debate.
Well, from the point of view of Lindenlabs Plastic Duck must be somewhat hard to come by. He's caused much trouble all over, but also seems to be a very good programmer who knows, what he's doing. But would it be wise to hire him from LLs point of view, if he really wanted to join LL? I guess not. Therefore it seems he's done too much in the past to be accepted by the community. Period.
