    That's almost as bad as the time Debian lost half its devs to Sphinux.

    The trolling even extended to the AUR repo on Arch. There "were" some childish people in the Manjaro dev community, and I for one am glad they are gone. I enjoy using Manjaro (even though I'm primarily an Arch user).

    Manjaro is by far the best distro I have ever used, I hope it gets stronger. Devs leaving is not necessarily something that shouldn't happen.

    Default Is one simply troll

    Source: https://mailman.archlinux.org/piperm...ly/029069.html

    Hello AUR General,

    I am a Manjaro team member and have been an Arch user for ~5 years. I
    still run Arch proper on many systems and test my AUR packages on Arch
    proper (just thought i'd get that out of the way ;-p )

    We've had to remove someone from our team recently due to their
    abusing of their forum account's moderation privileges and some other
    stuff. This person has gone on to prove just how right we were to get
    rid of them by launching malicious attacks on our wiki and attempts on
    some other web services. (There's no doubt it's the same person, he
    directly threatened us with malicious action.)

    It appears now he is attacking Manjaro team members with any avenue he can find.

    This account here:
    https://aur.archlinux.org/account/kingrobbo
    Has been made for no reason but to troll (myself and possibly other
    Manjaro devs with AUR accounts).

    It flagged all of my AUR packages out-of-date (of which none are) and
    sent a delete request for one (aqualung). The name "kingrobbo" tells
    me with 100% certainty that it's the same now-troll we've been dealing
    with, if any AUR admins want more information on this and why i know
    it's the same person please feel free to email me privately.

    For now i haven't set all my packages to not-out-of-date, so the AUR
    admins get a chance to see what i mean.

    I cannot apologise enough for our problems spilling onto AUR,
    obviously this is the last thing we want.

    Of course how to respond is up to you, but my hope is, obviously, that
    you'll delete their AUR account.

    Regards and apologies,
    Rob McCathie
    As you read the troll is abussing from AUR too, and look like is Directly to Manjaro users with any medium for they pruppose, they account was suspended in AUR, but look like him/he created other.

    So is one person trying to boicot Manjaro using any medium

    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:
    https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=14971.0
    With some further comment here:
    https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?...6856#msg136856


    @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.

    Default 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,

    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?".
