Angus: Serious reporting!

I started with this tweet:
I petition IBM to remove RPG from #IBMi SEU. Require developers to modernize with some tough love!

First response conversation went like this:
@ibmiguy: @angustheitchap that’s a tough one! Even for me. #ibmi
me: @ibmiguy Are you still using a 5250 terminal? Because that is, literally, the ~only~ excuse that works :-)

Second conversation:
@stevencpitcher: @angustheitchap Some old “features” like that were rendered “broken” during my last round of PTF’s.
me: @stevencpitcher That’s just a nudge. I propose a smack in the face..

@stevencpitcher @angustheitchap What would you propose to smack with then? Discontinuing SEU or SDA in the next release? I’d support that.

me: @stevencpitcher Yes! SDA+SEU removed in 7.1+1 – tough #IBMi love.

And then comes the killer tweet! Trolling for reporting fodder, an intrepid journalist spots a news story, and asks for the source!
@angustheitchap @stevencpitcher Do you have any references for SDA+SEU being released in 7.1+1? Thanks #IBMi

Wait! What? This is now an official release from IBM? What?

Thus endeth this morning’s humor.
