I am astounded at so much stupidity. The home page of your project
states that Adamantix is "A distribution mostly based on Debian woody,
but with some packages from testing and unstable".

You should try a reality check from time to time. If one of the projects
among Debian and Adamantix is indebted to the other one, it is quite
clearly Adamantix to Debian and not the other way round at the moment.

For me, it makes no doubt that you are far too dumb to assemble an
operating system that is as secure as advertised on the Adamantix home
page: it is clear that you are unable to audit all the code you
incorporated from Debian packages, including upstream code (be it skills
or time, most probably both). So, if a package you incorporated is
compromised, you are likely to be rooted. And for this to happen, it is
sufficient that a developer's machine be compromised. By not trying to
improve the security of most Debian installations (which you are doing
by refusing to cooperate to get PaX into Debian), you are doing nothing
to lower the probability of a developer's machine being compromised.

Yes, you are trying to get rooted, you and all Admantix users. That is

A last one, just for fun:

  "The Adamantix project aims to create the most secure but usable Linux
   platform on this planet" -- http://www.adamantix.org/

Nice joke.
