This might be true; however, one needs to look past all the sweet talk and
honey, at the meat of the matter. For this situation, there were very obvious
and apparent attempts at at misconception of the debian populace, in an
attempt to win favor.
If I had my druthers, I'd almost say this was a hoax.
It is in these situations, that one needs to see what is actually happening,
and get the evildoer to leave as quickly as possible; feeding with honey words
does not tend to have that effect.
