Don't believe them.

At in Dunedin in 2006, Rusty Russell started a
fundraiser for the John Lions chair of computer science at UNSW.  By
way of encouragement, he stated that if there were enough
contributions, he would shave off his moustache.  A number of us
joined in (David Miller, Jeff Waugh and myself, but explicitly not Jon
Hall), and he ended up raising $10,000.  So the next day we were
shaved.  I was horrified: suddenly I looked like the old man that I
was.  The beard had greyed over the years, but it had hidden the
change in my face.  I let the beard grow again, and haven't seen my
chin since.
