It turns out the the recent question regarding the misuse of rm -rf in Ansible was actually just a hoax in some kind of viral marketing effort. It become quite famous on various media and gathered a large number of views.
Fooled me. Doh! Seriously though, I’m not sure how this works as a viral marketing effort, and I have no interest in finding out. The guy is a plank.
Edit: I’m now wondering if this is a hoax viral marketing effort too. You’d think by now that I would have learned not to believe anything I read on the Internet.
