But Debian beings are not able to distinguish between disrespect
for actions made by some person (while at the same time holding
the person in, somewhat grudging, respect for the other things
they so) and disrespect for that person, all because they focus
on the language used nowadays. This seems to come from the anglo-
australic angle, which have been offended by “four-letter words”
and things like that for ages.

In Debian, these days, yes. Thanks for your support, Bjoern.
