Or you could easily extrapolate to our own context: for example, an IT
or software company employing DDs wins a major contract to supply a
Debian-based solution to schools or health care or social services. How
long do you think it will take tabloid newspapers in a place like the UK
to seize on a connection to something as inappropriate as this "game"?
If anything, one of the vendors who missed out on the contract would be
sending clues about it to the press just to make sure they couldn't miss it.
