It is this knee-jerk arrogant attitude on the part of smug self-righteous
debian developers that theirs is the only One True Way that brings the whole
Debian Project into disrepute; makes genuinely liberal minds uncomfortable;
and makes me despair of it.  (It is also what makes people lash back at it
verbally.  You shouldn't be surprised.)

I really *don't* want my name to be associated with a bunch of fascist
conformance enforcers as displayed by this posting.

The author of this piece of software has made his wishes clear; and they
should be respected.

You may not agree with them; they may not fit what you want; so look

But whatever you do, DO NOT see fit to attempt to pass ill-conceived judgment
on the author from your own fixed, inflexible viewpoint -- he has as much
right to his opinions and attitudes as you to yours, however different they
may be.

By sneering and jeering, you only show the poverty of your own fixed mental
attitudes, and the narrowness of your mindset.

A bon entendeur, salut.
