I've said this to Manoj and I'll say it to you. Judge an obfuscated
message that was sneaked past a maintainer like you'd judge an
obfuscated message that was sneaked past a maintainer.

Not like something malicious to the user's system or data. That's an
entirely different class of action.

Frankly, it worries me that some people have such a hard time making the
distinction. Are /you/ always on the border of doing something truly
malicious after you slightly passed the line of what's considered
acceptable behaviour? I sincerely hope not.
