Sounds like you distribute some propaganda, myths spreaded by hardcore
Ubuntu fans (or trolls).  Do you realize that Ubuntu is just a regular
Snapshot of Debian Sid plus some usability sugar?

Or do you realize that Ubuntu has a COC regulating destructive behaviour
of developers, while Debian does not? Read: they do already make sure
that people do not destruct the atmosphere of trust.  So it is okay for
Ubuntu to take care of that but not for Debian? Sounds like a
discrepancy in your judgement.

We are volunteers and we need motivation to _do_ things. It is not just
about writting code, donating it to some institution and go away. You
expect something in return, either money or some kind of credit (or
both, ideally ;-). And what you do not need is somebody driving your
blood presure to dangerous levels.
