Enigmatic? Doesn't seem difficult to understand.
Patrick has a very dry sense of humor and is fond of satire. For those
that haven't read it The Onion is a satirical site (and a good
one)[*1]. When I first looked at the boycottsystemd site I thought it
was someone sending up the anti-system extremists -  then I realised
"they" were serious.

Patrick cried in his coffee when he realised boycottsystemd was *not*
a satire.  (is that less enigmatic for you?)

The response to the comments on it would be "whoosh".

[*1] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Onion
Example of the sort of The Onion article that makes it easy to
facepalm at boycottsystemd:-
*Girl Scouts To Sell Cookies Online*
Good. This should help some of the shyer girls become more comfortable
talking to strangers online.”

He seemed pretty non-enigmatic here to:-
