Some one asked a question. It did not fit your criteria fro
what a question should be. You told the person posing the question
that the mail was inappropriate, and told them not to waste peoples
time. In the words of US politics, this produces a chilling effect
and suppresses questions that do not meet the critria of the person
telling people to go away and reformulate or shut up.
Please let the candidates deal with the questions, even
uncomfortable ones (within bounds of normal debian mailing list
traffic, which that question certainly was).
A man of great immorality is like a creeper, suffocating the tree it
is on. He does to himself just what an enemy would wish him. 162
