You seem to mean this in a pejorative manner (if I am wrong, I
apologize). However, if it is pejorative, I am glad -- for that
means, deep down, you realize the utter fallacy of your reasoning,
for you understand that it can not stand on its own without cheap ad
And thus you make my point. Thank you.

Who is sacrificing the user? Even though it is not part of
Debian, we maintain non-free software. We support it. The bug
tracking system is just as freely available for the non-free stuff as
it is for software that is part of Debian. We just refuse to promote
it as part of the Debian distribution.
In fact, so good is our support for non-free software, just
because our users wat it, that some people have the delusion that it
is indeed part of Debian.
It is not.

If you bleed so profusely for the common man (though I think
the common man is served well enough by Debian), why do I not see
you starting a commercial distribution based on Debian? We encourage
people to do that. Why is this always met with a deafening silence?
