	Note that "Users" goes before "Free Software". It can be useful for
our users to recommend gimp-nonfree in this case.

	Yes. Your response is disproportionated. You seem to have been
personally offended by this issue, and it shouldn't be like that. Take it
easy. Breath deeply. Take a nap. Eat some chocolate.

	I don't see how making more packages available to our users is
"lowering the quality of Debian in matter of freedom". I could understand it
if it was the opposite, i.e., making *less* packages available (restricting
the freedom of our users to choose). But anyway, I never understood why so
much fuss for the non-free section removal, so I'm not the most suited to
speak about it.

	Why? Does Macromedia support Mozilla in some way? (I'm genuinely
interested in this; if it's true, I had no knowledge about it)
