 Oh, nice.  What was that quote with multiple exclamation/question marks?

 It simply isn't bullshit.  I am using Debian on one 486 and some 586 on
my own, and I know that there are others.  Don't call facts bullshit.

 Kept aside of course that having both i386 and i686 won't do no harm

 So you are volunteering to do it?  Great.  I am looking to hearing from
you on that topic soon.  Your efforts will be appreciated.

 If you are not, who do you think you are to demand such things from a
voluneer organization?  Sorry if this sounds ignorant but I for my part
as a volunteer like to do things because _I_ believe in them and not
because some jerk comes along and forces me to do it.  Some might like
your idea and help you, but pretty please change your tone for you are
definitely _NOT_ in the position to use it that way, thank you.

 So long!
