Good riddance! It's too bad that you did not leave after misleading
the other developers about "editorial changes".

This is true. I used to trust the people who worked on Debian and

despise some developers. Then I realized that feeling emotionally
attached to an operating system means that your life priorities are
totally fucked up, so I moved on.
