Dear LinAdmin

Vagrant brought up the community guidelines because he felt that you were
actually  outside them, I suspect. Making accusations about Debian's 
attitude to ARM support repeatedly and against the evidence provided 
to the Debian developers who are actually actively engaging in ARM support 
is not the most helpful approach if you want to make your point.

debian-arm is an official Debian mailing list. It's subject to the Debian
mailing list code of conduct and the main Debian code of conduct.

Your postings seem to go against:
* Be respectful
* Assume good faith
* Be collaborative

Making the point once would have been enough if you had engaged 
constructively with the other participants . Repeating it hasn't helped
especially since your statement appears to be untrue.

If you look at the last paragraph of my reply at 
you'll see one reason why your replies are also off-topic. This list
deals primarily with Debian: Ubuntu and other distributions are, strictly,
off topic here although those here will often try to provide points of 
comparison or other help on a best endeavours basis.
