Uh, so that your concerns get considered and the issue is resolved in
a fair way?

You're allowed to speak in support of things, as well as when your
bitterly opposed to them. It could be argued that it's even better to do
that, since arguing against things gets people fed up with doing stuff
for Debian.

If you want something to be offended by, perhaps you'd rather look at
it this way: if you didn't have anything intelligent to say then, why
should anyone think you've got anything intelligent to say now?

(And "me too" isn't helpful support, any more than "this sux!" is an
intelligent objection)

I don't speak for anyone save myself. GPG signed mail preferred.
