This is guilt engineering and it DOES NOT WORK !
You cannot get better performance and more attention from volunteers
by being nasty to them. Giving maintainers a hard time will just
make them go and read a book, watch TV, read news, do DIY, or whatever
else, instead of dealing with all the negative vibes from Debian. The
result: fewer bugs fixed.
