  Theo de Raadt (/ˈθiː.oʊ dɛˈrɔːt/; Dutch: [ˈteː.o dɛˈraːt]; born May 19,
  1968) is a software engineer who lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He
  is the founder and leader of the OpenBSD and OpenSSH projects, and was
  a founding member of the NetBSD project.

The article does go on to say that although "few deny he is a talented hacker[5]
and security 'guru'," he suffers from "outspokenness".

To say he knows very little about programming seems extreme. I guess
you're one of the few referred to in the article.

His comments about malloc() wrappers shows he knows nothing about how the code actually works. He may be a "talented security guru" (that has yet to be proven), but he's not a good C programmer.
