    > I don't fully understand why packages like this are so popular.

    It actually works like this: Author X develops `iseven`, `isodd`, etc. No one really downloads such packages. Author X then develops `importantPackage` which does do something useful developers out here download. Now `iseven`, `isodd` are downloaded alongside `importantPackage`.

    My point is, we should recognize certain NPM authors as toxic, but I guess "freedom of speech/code" stops us from doing so. Example of such an author: https://github.com/jonschlinkert/

    Interesting, 845 repositories by the user, and the vast majority of them are simple NPM modules such as this one.

    Has there been any recent instances of someone abusing simple NPM repos like this for malicious intent?

    It doesn't look like so. The author is definitely creating some confusion, but the readme of his professional Github's account (https://github.com/jonschlinkert) says:

    > Several years ago I switched careers from sales, marketing and consulting to learn how to program, with the goal of making the world a better place through code. [...] To date, I've created more than 1,000 open source projects in an effort to reach my goal. Open source software takes a lot of time to create and maintain. You can help me to achieve my goals of changing the world through code, help me create better developer experiences, or just say thank you by sponsoring me on GitHub.

    He's asking for real money; he's definitely not a troll.

    He probably moved that repo away from his profile (https://github.com/jonschlinkert) to avoid being trolled
    12 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 16 Nov 2021
    It's insanely funny to me that these packages exist while one of his bigger projects (https://github.com/enquirer/enquirer) lists the following reason under "why use it":

    > Several years ago I switched careers from sales, marketing and consulting[1]

    The author's bio on his GitHub profile explains it: he's approaching development with a mindset of sales and marketing. It's also followed by his GitHub stats front and center.
