Linus Torvalds blesses DRM, and nothing happens

Last week Linus Torvalds said share denial technology, or DRM (Digital Rights Management) is OK. He did so on a linux kernel mailing list and so
anticipating the reaction, with the Subject line: Flame Linus to a crisp!, he wrote:
"I'm going to just hunker down for some really impressive extended flaming, and my asbestos underwear is firmly in place, and extremely
uncomfortable."
Continuing the dramatic costume theme, Linux IDE subsystem guy Andre Hedrick entered, first warning, with a gothic flourish, that:
"Like fire, control DRM/CPRM and you receive benefits. Let it run wild and you will be burned."
