Hello everybody,

I think that this discussion is going completely out of proportions.  Francesco
always makes sure that his replies contain an informative answer.  In the last
part of his emails, he adds his point of view in a way that it is very clear
that it is not Debian's.  People who already read it can easily skip it, just
like email signatures.

If Debian bans Francesco from this list, I will fee very ashamed of us.

Also, with such a low threshold for banning people who are polite, precise, who
do not engage into flamewars, and never show aggressivity, we will set the
stage for massive purge and witch-hunting, because of many people are within
the treshold.

Have a nice day,
