I *used* to think that those disclaimers are implicit in most cases.

But then, I was harshly accused of not making it clear enough that
I am neither a lawyer, nor a Debian developer, that I'm not providing
legal advice, and that I don't speak on behalf of the Debian Project.
Other people were similarly attacked for the same reason.


As a consequence I began adding the disclaimers to my messages, in
order to explicitly remind readers about the above facts.

Now, you say that those disclaimers are a waste of time...

I'm really puzzled.
