Please, don't confuse my work on Hurd with my opinions about Debian as a
whole. I've bee using (and contributing to) Debian for a multitude of
years now, long before starting to port packages for Hurd (and
kFreeBSD). Please!

I am completely calm. And I do apologise, I am sorry for suggesting that
somebody steps down from the project. That was wrong, admitted.

However, for the statement above, calling everything not in line with
that persons beliefs (or agenda) a "piece of shit" is also not nice,
independent of being a DD, DM or whatever. It is not productive, only
rude and showing lack of respect to other peoples work.
