@Austin_Dern@nightpool@codl I can actually see them having done that on purpose to fool automated warning/checker things. It’s an anti pattern I saw a few times at Amazon internally to escape a code auditor process.
@fluffy@nightpool@codl Surely is to sneak past automated checking, yes. It's the laziness that gets me. If they titled like, 'networkSuccess' or 'connectStatus' or even 'misc1' then you'd have something too boring to pay attention to if you caught it being passed on your network.
@nightpool which also reminds me that each npm package I install, each shady library I git clone and build is executing arbitrary code in my self-signed-certificate-secure-boot-and-full-disk-encryption-TPM-enabled-machine
paranoid mode (re)activated, I'll probably be installing "CleanMyPC" in like four days or so
