Why do you persist in mistakenly believing that this has ANYTHING to do
with trying to cause problems for him?  I don't give a damn about him.  I
care about:

   - Debian's reputation
   - The security of my machines
   - Our users

I believe the best way to protect all of the above is by removing micq
from the archive.  The short-term inconvenience to users of the package
cannot be compared with the long-term benefits of not using software
developed by a sociopath.
