It certainly _resembles_ a classic troll: long and vaguely insulting
(under a surface veneer of politeness), yet curiously vague and
information-free, despite its length, and ending with "I'm giving up
on Debian."  When pushed for details (in a later message), he says
"I'm too busy to file bug reports."

There are certainly valid complaints about Debian (and have been for
every release), but people who are really trying to give constructive
criticism almost always seem to act very differently:  they complain
about specific problems, in at least enough detail that people know
what they're talking about.

Even if the OP didn't actually intend to troll, somebody who does
nothing other than make vague insinuations and refuses to provide
details simply isn't a very useful part of any conversation whose goal
is to make things better...


Opposition, n. In politics the party that prevents the Goverment from running
amok by hamstringing it.
