Wow, I didn’t expect this sort of hostility from your to be honest; I
find what you’re doing is very rude. I see no reasons to believe
Jonathan acted in bad faith and his reasoning doesn’t seem to justify
your threats.

If I were using libzdb in any of my project, I would seek a way to
remove a dependency on it after this email. If I were a maintainer, I
would try to untie reverse dependencies, if any, and ask for a removal
of this package from Debian.

I don’t think people with such an attitude who threat others with DMCA
takedown notices should be welcome in the free software community.
This attitude is incompatible with the spirit of free software.
