The posting went up the same day Wikipedia pulled Denis's article. And the discussion of the Wikipedia article involved an echo. The complaint itself states first hand knowledge of what Denis is thinking.
The fact is, this is someone close to him, and not a random reader.
He also has and even on the mailing list, a group of people who surround him who guard him, like what you find in a cult.
Quoting the threat:
Ruben Safir seeks to Devuan terminated by scam page on your donations
Serious accusation but true. Ruben Safir, who promoted the deletion of Jaromil from Wikipedia and is doing so with more articles, is conducting this very personal and trying donations via Stripe to Devuan be blocked denouncing it's a scam page.
This would be internal knowledge of what Roio is thinking since only he would know anything about donations via Stripe, which is a financial organization I'd never heard of.
Ruben got tired, so as once I got on the bus that left several pages offline, it came time you open your anus.
This guy who claims to be developer of opensuse or tries to be, the same Ruben Safir who asked deleting the wikipedia article Jaromil, is making donations via Stripe and canceling them,
This is an absurd accusation that could have only been conjured up in a private conversation between Denis and a compatriot.
They are making the claim that they have direct inside knowledge that would only be known by Denis.
So they are being incited by Denis? Don't believe it? Read what was actually written on the Wikipedia deletion page.
Please consider this deletion has been filed (by unregistered IP users)
in coincidence with personal attacks, public threats and insults I have
received by exposing myself as co-leader of the Devuan project, a fork
of Debian to defend the GNU/Linux distribution from the systemd
avalanche, a much debated topic flaming the open source communities.
Up until this point their had been NO personal attacks on this guy whatsoever, and this message exposes the lie that he was cooking up. He wasn't receiving any threats or insults because he by exposing his self for leading Devuan. He was denying any leadership role until he was forced to step forward and take responsibility. After that, nobody cared about him, let alone bothered him. It was his choice to step this up.

You know Rick, I like this methodology of discourse. I'm going to borrow this from you one day.
BTW - I have no evidence that Denis directly wrote that page. The evidence is that he incited others to do so by sharing with them if personal view of events and actions which have nothing to do with what I said or did. Evidently, things are happening around him, or so he thinks anyway, including some financial transactions, that could have only had come from intimate knowledge that would be otherwise private to him.
Then he used the mailing list for personal incitement. Should I start quoting them:
"meanwhile he is managing to delete all mentions of my past work from wikipedia and
spread insults and defamations while keeps alling this a fraud.
This is once again something other educated critics of systemd have faced in the past.
Really, who is deleting something from Wikipedia? He was expecting He work is well represented on Wikipedia, and his name is pseudonym redirects right to it. Wikipedia just decided to remove his glamour page.

Just noting it here, since this community is the only one that can
witness the temporal connection between the personal attacks I've
received by trolls here and this prompt deletion request on WL
I'm not calling for defense here, rather would like to state that the
systemd crowd has been leading their aggressions with even more personal
attacks than what it is said to be about us and more in general the
people opposing the systemd avalanche.
Thanks everyone for keeping this an interesting place for exchanges and
debates, even when dissenting among each other we can be mature and keep
far from personal wars targeting people for doing what they love to do
in their life.
Dealing with these guys is like dealing with Alice in wonderland. if I
had to guess, and this is a shot in the dark, this is the idiot who probably
wrote the attack article

How you can hide you personal information if you have even a Wikipedia
page about you and a dozen of books?
This is not enough probably, right? Now you will start acting like this
page is made from one of us, right? LOL
I’m start thinking that you are not able to use a search engine and
discern information :
I'm asking for information on dyne.org's leadership and this guy is
giving me Denis's

Where? That would be good. Even people on his mailing list had noticed
that even had several prodding that is has not spoken out against the
personal threat. Kumbayah...

the project leaders are the members of the VUA collective (of which I'm
just one). The VUAs have written the documentation insofar present on
the web and such documentation and proposition is what motivates people
to donate money. Dyne.org is there so that this money doesn't go into a
private account, but a public one administered by a foundation with a
clear mandate to serve the public interest with free and open source
If someone would have preferred and trusted more kickstarter for this:
we simply don't. If the VUAs will like to give a percentage of the
donated amount to Dyne.org, to compensate for the administration costs,
then we'll take it, but we will not impose a service fee. Dyne.org help
is completely voluntary and promoted by me above all other members of
The VUAs will respond about their promises to donors. For Devuan we will
see what structure to take, but since the objective of this project is
clear to most of us and to our audience (to the point they evidently
willing to donate for it in full possession of their will, also noting
the documentation is rather technical and implies knowledge of technical
aspects) we will not negotiate what we have declared we are doing, we
will just execute it. We are software artisans, not politicians.
That is not an answer as to who leading this, who is receiving money that
is donated to them and how it is spent.
It is all still cloak and dagger. the only reason I back off initially
was a combination
of school and a belief that I had that this guy is actually a loon, but
probably not a

Why? Because of things like this which is a pattern, not an exception.
Indeed. But he is now claiming that I'm the author of a website

Ummm no Denis. I'm accusing you of inciting this, and encouraging it.
And I think you
are doing so directly. Whether you or a compatriot did this, whether
you asked him
to or not, you encouraged it and you refuse to takes the steps necessary
to rein it
If you were a mench, Denis, we wouldn't even be having this conversation.
