Are you kidding?

Do you really think that I'm the only person to find UNACCEPTABLE that
a package in mail suggests packages in non-free, which ARE NOT PART OF

Are you really think that it is acceptable, when some people propose

Have you checked why it is no longer possible to save as images gif
with the package Gimp in main?

If you don't, please, keep off your hands from this report.
