Well, it's really not..  Unless you sent this message back in 1996 and it's
been delayed in the queue for 8 years.  That would be a neat trick, though.

I wholeheartedly agree with you, and when you are not speaking for Debian I
encourage you to do whatever the hell suits your fancy, provided that you do
not come to the Debian lists and complain about it when someone filters you.

When a Debian user contacts you, however, and you are unable to respond to
him because he is filtering out your dialup IP, you should make a special
effort to contact him by other means.  Of course, being a volunteer, as some
people have pointed out, entitles you to ignore him (and the Social Contract,
by the way -- remember the part about users being our highest priority?)
