are you saying that no user of a Debian system uses RedHat or Slackware?

i will lose no sleep if the bookmarks are not in there (_i_ don't use red
hat nor slackware), but to heavy handedly say ``No Debian users would
benefit'' is a bit over the top.

we are not talking about _adding_ bookmarks, we are talking about
_removing_, for a non-technical reason, which is a form of censorship.
i'm against _that_ idea, especially since leaving them in _causes us no
damage_ (IMHO of course).
