Risking to get a mail like this too or looking pretty silly I wonder what's
wrong with his mail. 

nm shows a lot of symbols in libc that do not belong there according to
policy. AFAIRC you should strip --strip-unneeded each shared library. But
this has not been done with libc.

I have no idea what happened before but I strongly dislike a wording like
this. This list is a public forum and mails like Joel's do not create a good
image for Debian at all.
