Wheezy. It's obvious, isn't it? It comes between Squeeze and Jessie.

Wheezy is a brand. It's not really any different than "Snow Leopard" or
"XP". Do you expect people to care that one is "10.6.8" and the other

Actually, I DO want "hundreds of email's [sic] in [my] inbox". I DON'T
want to have to remember *another* login, have to visit *another*
webpage to read messages. The beauty of a mailing list is that the
messages are delivered to you. Filtering messages into folders isn't
really that hard (whether you do it server- or client-side).

And, please, don't impugn debian's spam filter. Do you know how many
spam messages it blocks each day?
