It would have been kind of easier to forgive it and move on if he didn't
outright lie. KatolaZ, I think that is how April Fool's joke usually go.
You need to say "April Fool's" when someone finds out, otherwise it is
just cruelty - not a joke. Someone mentioned harmless. It would have
been harmless if the site said Devuan officially decided to moved to
gopher. That would have been decent and legit joke. Just my 2 cents -
not meaning to beat a dead horse.
