and i just now see the second post from a person naming apper as the

update source which 'wrecked' his day:
Nice example. The user added non-default repos. Not apper's fault. The user
enabled automatic updates. Not default, not apper's fault. Running "zypper
up" would have caused exactly the same. "YaST > Packages > All packages >
update if more recent version available" would have done the same as well.

[...]

I claim that it's valid to assume that people adding non-standard repos
would also run zypper up or use YaST to do so if apper etc. were not
available. After all, why did they add the repos in the first place, if
they want to stick with oss + official updates?

Proof: same issue but no apper involved.

So where is the thread to bash zypper up for wrecking days and systems, being
buggy, removing it from the distro, telling everybody to remove the package
and rename the binary to make sure it cannot cause any trouble etc.?

I think the examples and references in this thread should do for reasonable
people to get things right regarding "apper wrecks systems" and others won't
change their mind anyway, no matter how many facts you feed them.
