Its evil. Making people believe that someone is dead, publicly, and placing obituaries online shows no regard for the 
thoughts & feelings of the person being trolled or the others who may read them. 

In a community where whispers and hear-say can even get SANS to look for an OpenSSH 0day "doing-the-rounds", spreading 
'misinformation' about a well-liked individual who worked on a project for the community is unpleasant - making out 
they are dead is just horrible.

There are people at the end of the computers. Don't ever forget it.

It seems the whole thing was a Hoax rumor put about by
people who I can only describe as pure evil. Glad to know he
is fine.

What's "pure evil" about exploiting the ease by which one
can spread
misinformation? If anything, it exposes how willing even a
like this is to believe a single blogpost and spread it
around without
truly confirming its origins.

I was trolled, I have lost. Feel free to admit it yourself
instead of
calling this prank "pure evil."
