+ - Jonatan Riddle Vetoes KDE 4 April Fool's Prank

Submitted by Karma Sucks
Karma Sucks (127136) writes "Jon Ridler long time KDE contributor and KDE Dot News editor has put his foot down and vetoed the awesome KDE 4 April Fool's prank as reported by KDE Dot News. John found fit to leak the confidential article to IRC and found that the humour-impaired KDE developers did not find the article funny since it might actually be true. With the help of billionaire Mark Shuttlemoon of Kubuntoo, J.R. of Dallas exercised his veto option and blocked the article from appearing. In an attempt to capitalise on this unfortunate incident, Uwe Theme responded by writing a lame April Fool's joke of his own about KDE e.V. supposedly sending a cease and desist letter to Microsoft. The article is clearly an attempt to publicise the heretofore unknown Linucks North Afrikan website."

Committees have become so important nowadays that subcommittees have to be appointed to do the work.
