I do not understand your statements.

I am sorry that I upset you. I am not saying that I am
totally confused, nor that I read the right stuff. It
is interesting that you claim that I think that "you"
know better than me, and even more interesting that you
claim that I think that you are ignorant. If there is
a more appropriate forum to learn the legal significance
of debian development and whether it is something that I
can believe in and share with others, I am very
interested in finding out.
You are a sham when you say that you would be happy to
explain it, when you have not, nor have you directed me
to where I can. All the information that you have
provided just adds to my "noise".

Now, I am really confused as I believe that it is
related to the reason why the ?majority? believe that
vim cannot be packaged in debian.
Law has to be knowable,
