      Updates / Related info:

      The Arch Linux forum thread referenced in the article now clearly shows the posts were made by a troll impersonating us:
      https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=183991

      Some insight can be gained from my post to the AUR general mailing list:
      https://mailman.archlinux.org/piperm...ly/029069.html

      Phil has made a statement here:

      With some further comment here:

      @Michael:
      I appeal to you to simply delete the article (not this forum thread), it literally only exists as result of misinformation from an outright troll.

        Dear Michael,

        A handful of people left, one of them has gone on to attempt to 'troll' us by any avenue he can (including malicious attacks on web servers, impersonation of us on other website/services, and much more), of which this Phoronix article is assisting him with. The Manjaro team still stands at at least 15+ people.

        Of those who left, only one was a "core" team member, the rest were forum moderators and one was an edition maintainer.

        In future Michael if you have any questions about Manjaro please feel free to contact me.

        Regards,
        Rob McCathie
        Michael,
        I've been a follower of phoronix for the last 3+ years. I've seen you increasing the pace of new articles produced. I'm a workaholic too. But I've had to reduce my daily worktime to 10 hours or less, because it had a serious impact on the quality of my work.

        The quality of your articles has decreased significantly. You may have gotten away with being "duped" this time. Please stop your "10 articles a day" mantra. I don't want to see you making a complete fool out of yourself.

        Again: I prefer one single well researched article a day over 10 shallow fifteen-liners.

        regards Willi ...

            You mean this wasn't already happening?

            Phoronix is and always has been a Linux tabloid.

            Every article is graced with Michael's shit-eating grin that screams "how can I manipulate the FLOSS community today?".

              I have no idea what the internal conflict was about (and i don't really care), but you will probably find this useful:

                I think this is unfair as this hasn't really been the case in the previous months. There are less articles of higher quality for at least the previous months, especially compared to the days Michael would consistently point out ad-blockers.

                To be honest, I could make the argument that you're the fool.

                  Well, I don't think this is unfair. I understand very well that somebody *can* be swallowed up by his work without him realizing. Just look at the pace of articles. It's currently >= 10 a day! Its been so since begin (middle?) last year. I'm not a prophet, but a breakdown *will* happen. No, I'm not unfair, I could just silently leave...

                  Look what others think:

                  I used to like Michael's articles (also with his face, according some comments)

                  I'd like to see that argumentation line...

                    Ha, even the BSDs have a more stable developer base.
