        Err, that is a poor criteria. Some people are offended by
 others wishing them a merry Christmas, preferring happy holidays
 instead. And others are offended by the dilution of Christmas by
 happy holidays.

        You are offended by the reference to sexcual preference. I am
 disgusted by the implication you are offended by other peoples sexual

        Indeed, I think the thinly veiled homophobia I seem to detect
 in some posts and reactions around here does more to damage Debian
 than that initial email to d-d-a.
