	Cuase I find that action to be fascist, censorship, and far
 that the cure is farse worse than the disease.

	As long as the images are legal, and dfsg free, they should
 not have to be downloaded from outside Debian.

	And introdice one far worse, that Debian has been taken over

 upon every one else.

	I think that is a pretty significant complaint myself.
