The Truth about "Raw Pointers Removed from C++"

Five bloggers have teamed up around the world to deliver an April Fool's joke to readers about eliminating pointers. The response to the five articles was huge and ranged from "it took so long" to "that can not be true".  Here again the truths, half-truths and untruths: No New New: Raw Pointers Removed from C++.  You can even read this post in German or in Russian

First of all, who are the five bloggers?

     Arne Mertz (Simplify C ++)
     Simon Brand (Tartan Llama)
     Jonathan Boccara (Fluent C ++)
     Bartolomiej Filipek (Bartek's coding blog)
     Rainer Grimm (Modern C ++)

Once more very clearly: pointers will not be deprecated in C ++ 20 and will not be removed in C ++ 23.
