Once again the zealots are frothing. Calm down, sit back, and realize
that nobody is trying to force a package out of debian. What was asked
was a *question*. Intended to make the person who submitted the ITP
reevaluate whether it's an appropriate package. This is a quite
reasonable thing to do, even though anyone who asks such a question has
to put up with a lot of uninformed flamage every time. Yes, there is a
lot of junk in debian. It would be nice if people took a minute to think
about whether adding a package is really useful--especially if someone
raises the question--rather than adding another 0.0.1 version of a
package that gets orphaned a couple of months later. Do we have a
mechanism to force that? No. *But it's still legal to raise the damned
question, so there's no need to spout off about censorship or any other
wild-eyed conspiracy you choose to invoke.* 

Or are you trying to censor the question?
