Unfortunately, open-source does that from time to time. Some moron decides his opinion is the truth or wants to make a statement, the "clever" way. It could be due to his frustration if you decline some of his PRs.

Sometimes, it's even more stupid. It's just because it's possible, murphy's law. I'm glad there are now means to mitigate those "contributions".

Big shout out to every single organizer and contributor!

I'm hopeful with Digital Ocean's new opt-in approach, open source maintainers won't be in hiding now. I feel like this whole drama has made Hacktoberfest better!
