April Fools day is really easy to handle for those of us that grew up with it.
For those from different countries/cultures that don’t have April Fools day, it has to be a totally alien thing.
I can see how such April Fools pranks as the one in the OP of this thread could really be taken seriously & damage a person’s view of Manjaro (or whatever other project that has done such a thing - & there would’ve been a LOT of them on April 1st).
I guess that this is an example of the effect of the internet on broadening the outlook of various cultures around the world. Which is certainly not a bad thing, though there will be the occasional growing pain when different member cell’s have to adapt to the silliness of his neighbor.
