It is especially awful complicated to ignore it you mean ? There is no
doubt about what i am requesting, as everyone is telling me, i keep
repeating the same thing over and over.

Sure, and i will have to go to slashdot or the general press, is this
that you want ?
Sam, is it so difficult to stop this in a human and decent way ? You are
acting exactly like Anthony Towns did last year, i guess that the DPL
position corrupts one after all :(
So, if you keep threatening me, like you just did, this only enourages
me to continue, and escalate the issue.
So, i ask you again as DPL, do something so that the agression and

This is as easy as a public pronounsement on debian's part that it has

To which i reply how sorry i was it had to take so long for a decent

And if some threaten to leave the project because i am not punished,
then so be it, debian is better off without such persons whose behaviour
will only hurt the project again one way or another, and should not be
