I was one of those, lurking here since quite a few few months, and
saying nothing when reading about that April fool's joke:

It was crystal-clear, that there wasn't any danger at any point to
the integrety of the devuan infrastructure re. this joke: KatolaZ has
his public key published on this very list since quite some time: and
with exactly this key he signed the message telling us that it was a
joke. Obviously there are people out there who do not understand the
idea behind signing emails, people who - if they really meant what
they were writing here - never should come closer than a few feet to
any computer, anywhere.

In retrospect it may have been a mistake to not tell the previous
much earlier: but as grandmas used to say: if you cannot say it
nicely don't say anything at all. In that very case I should have
been ignoring grandma.

True, but in that case: one lets them win. And they win it's because
we allow them to do so. And only then they will win ....

KatolaZ: I understand you're fed up with the crap: but you let
losers win.

Sorry for intervening only now.
